    I think the first is basically a kind of spaghnum moss, but the second is more mysterious. The flower size in the photo is deceptive - they were tinier than my little finger nail in real life. Seen today on the Pennine Moors, Lancs.DSCF1466.JPGDSCF1472.JPGDSCF1472.JPGDSCF1466.JPGDSCF1472.JPG

      Sphagnum moss, yes.

        Thanks. I thought the reds in the second pic were flowers. If you zoom in close they seem to have reproductive parts.

        I thought it was just a red form of sphagnum moss.
