Lichen

with 29 comments

After the downpour on the morning of October 9, I drove half a mile down the hill from my house to Great Hills Park, put on a pair of rubber boots, and walked through terrain that was soaked for the first time in months. One thing that grabbed my attention was this highly sculpted lichen on an old cedar elm branch. Because of the overcast skies and the suddenly wet dying and dead vegetation, the autumn landscape provided a warm backdrop to the cool, very pale green of much of the lichen.
