- The Mosses -
We fell in love with the beauty of mosses after reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel The Signature of All Things. The journey of the main character, Alma Whittaker, into botany, her exploration and desire, encouraged us to explore the importance of this tiny, mostly unseen hero in the biospheres around us. These incredible plants intercept, retain and slowly release water into rivers, dams and ravines. Bryophytes comprise three distinct groups and, unlike flowering plants, have poorly developed internal tubes for transporting food and water. As a result, they are small and often abundant in wet places.
