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.
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.
I can't name them either but I sure can enjoy your stunning photos of them!
Another wonderful collage of nature to lift our spirits. Thanks!
I don't know much about them either but I do love to look at them. Your photos are great and you've put together a beautiful collage of what I love in nature.
You've managed to fine a plethora of color without flowers. Wonderful collage and love the "bad hair day", made me laugh.
it always amazes me how beautiful simple things can be.
I don't know any names but always enjoy your nature photos...it would be nice to tromp thru the woods and take photos, esp. If the mosquitoes are gone!
I have no idea of the names but am positive about the beauty. B
pretty little spots of nature. :)
You know much more about lichens and moss than I! Thanks for the description and lovely collage of photos. Greetings. Jo
I can't help you identify the mosses and lichens, but I can tell you how beautiful I think all these photos truly are.
You always have really nice Nature notes...always like the collage!
I wonder if there is a guidebook for that sort of thing..now I am curious, but I haven't started to explore that yet..but I should with the woods right here....Michelle
Wonderful nature collage EG!
And it's nice to have no mosquitoes AND no boots.
I love moss of all kinds but can't help with the I.D. ing. Another great nature collage from you. This is a great time of year.
Gorgeous!! I just love your collage, with all these beautiful Autumn colors, the lovely light in the background of the lichen on the twig! =)
