Hypne cyprès


I couldn’t remember the Unicode encoding for hyphens (‐), so I searched for it. I misspelled it, and accidentally learned about moss:

L’Hypne cyprès ou Hypnum cupressiforme est une mousse. C’est la plus répandue sur Terre, en effet, elle pousse sur toutes sortes de surfaces comme des troncs d’arbres, des murs ou des rochers. Son nom vient de la forme de ses feuilles qui ressemblent à des branches de cyprès.

Omlette du fromage, indeed! What did the next search result show?

Hypnum cupressiforme (cypress-leaved plait-moss or hypnum moss) is a common and widespread species of moss belonging to the genus Hypnum. It is found in all continents except Antarctica and occurs in a wide variety of habitats and climatic zones.

Moss is like my blog, it grows on you.
