I'm continuing my wildlife surveys of Edinburgh's cemeteries. Today was sunny and cold as I visited the Grange Cemetery. I have never visited this cemetery before, though I have looked over the perimeter wall from the bus!

The Cemetery is looked after by the Grange Association, which has put together a tree trail round the cemetery and also has a wealth of information about the trees on its website.
I was interested to find this strange stuff, which is dog vomit slime mould!
More appealing looking than that are the many mosses, including Grimmia pulvinata, which is my favourite moss
