Today’s topic:Do you like lichen? Lichens are organisms that tend to be overlooked, but they can add beautiful color and texture to the landscape. This site offers a great introduction to the world of lichens. In my garden I have a few boulders with small amounts of flat, silvery-gray lichen, but nothing as showy as the growths above. Do you have lichens in your garden? What surfaces are they growing on? What do they look like?
