Likin' The Lichen


When I noticed this saffron-coloured lichen (click here) on the rocks at Point Pleasant Park last week,

I couldn't resist.

    1. Hello Ms.Rock! I bet you would love to be surrounded by rocks! Right Sharon! There is something about them that attracts me too. Maybe the solidness, stability.....

  7. Your lichen link taught me that lichens can be used for dye. Our spinning class is having a dye day next week. Hmmm. I'll have to do a little research. Fun.

    1. Perfect timing I'd say. Can you just imagine yarn in that saffron colour?

  8. That's fabulous, Jim. I can see something like that enlarged and hanging on the wall. It would make quite the focal point. I love the contrast between the colours. That orange shade really does the trick. Mother Nature is quite the artist, don't you think?
