A walk in a conservation area
Last Saturday was a beautiful day. Although the flowers are gone, we still have no snow. Just a few flurries but so far nothing has stuck to the ground. No mosquitoes and no boots! YAY!
Unfortunately, when it comes to identifying ferns, mosses and lichens I am still a novice. So if you know something I don't, please speak up.
Largest square: there are two types of lichen on this twig. I love how the greener lichen appears to be having a bad-hair day.
Moving clockwise: arborvitae growing beside a pond; fern growing in a small amount of dirt in a moss-covered limestone rock; green juniper berries; hole in tree - evidence of woodpeckers and bugs; and moss growing on a tree stump.
