52 in 2015 Week 31 Wildlife.


According to Wikipedia

“Wildlife traditionally refers to non-domesticated animal species, but has come to include all plants, fungi, and other organisms that grow or live wild in an area without being introduced by humans”

With that in mind I give you this lovely little plant I found growing on a slate wall in Cwmorthin.

Moss on Slate

Cwmorthin is a remote valley in North Wales. No one lives there now and it is mainly used by walkers (not the ones you see in The Walking Dead); but people who like to get out and walk in the hills.  Moss and lichens seem particularly attracted to the remains of the slate walls of the old abandoned building.

At this time of the year the bees are buzzy, buzzy, buzzy. Working so hard to get pollen from the flowers of the lavender we have growing in the garden. It’s a natural bee attractor and on a hot sunny day the smell of lavender is really strong. We have several varieties growing in the garden.

That’s it! As always these 52 posts are quite short. I hope you enjoyed the photographs.

    Love the first photo. The colors of the lichen are so pretty. Amazing things to find living/growing outdoors.

      I see a lot of different types of moss and lichen when I’m out walking Yvonne. Slate seems to attract the plants.
