Mosses and ferns are the ultimate forest plants, growing in places of green, shady lushness or, in some cases, in sand and sun. These plants are diverse in size, color, shape, habitat, and locations. They can be found from the misty cliff sides to the drier beach edges.
In the language of flowers, ferns mean Magic, Fascination, Sincerity, and Confidence. This information was kindly provided by Marilyn Cornwell.
NOTE: We now include mushrooms and other fungi, algae, seaweed, lichens, molds, and liverworts in these images. If you have images including these mysterious and amazing not-quite-green plants, please post them:>)
If you love these beautiful plants, join the group and share your images for all to enjoy:>)
Every now and then I choose an image that, in my humble opinion, is superb. It will be showcased on our home page, until I choose another, and it is called the SPECIAL SPOTLIGHT AWARD. We have so many exceptional images in our group that I want to give some of them a very special showing.
Our newest choice for a Special Spotlight work of art is Mark’s “Russula undulata”. You can click on this image to give him a great comment or leave a FAVE:>)
