Lichen


I think this is a harmless lichen growing on the bark of this tree. I thought it made an interesting pattern.

Linking to Our World Tuesday.

May you not stand in the same place so long that lichen begins to grow on our leg. :-)

I've never seen one like that before. We don't see lichens here in the desert but where I grew up in Illinois we would see them all the time.

I've not seen that color before. It would be great for Valentine's Day!

Good heavens how interesting Lois! I have not seen anything like it. I wondered if lichen were harmful to the tree but apparently not according to Google 😊

Never seen. I searched on Wikipedia for it and now I know the name for it in my own language: korstmos :-) Here we haven't this in you color. We have: Xanthoria parietina and Rhizocarpon geographicum. Thank you for sharing your "korstmos" with me.
