Splash Cups

Removing detritus from the moss garden, I found these “bird’s-nest fungi, aka “splash cups.” I read that they get their name from the fact that falling rain splashes out the silver peridioles (spores). Last year, I found some and wrote the poem “Earth Trumpets.” (https://www.bhepp.us/2018/11/earth-trumpets/)
