Intricate and beautiful. It's often overlooked.
The organic equivalent of a snowflake.
Someone once said that it was a tragedy to disturb Lichen because it puts so much effort into growing - just 1mm a year for some.


  1. Yes, I think the poor things are often ignored as true plant life! I find them fascinating though.

    Great post!

  2. Oh the bench and your photo of the bench are amazing! I wonder how long it's been since anyone had a seat on it? K x

  3. Great pictures! I'm trying to more moss to grow on the walls around our flowerbeds. It looks quite nice and rustic, and not having to scrape it off all the time certainly makes life easier. x
