Moss and Lichens


Life in Christian County, Kentucky... More About Trees and Plants...



Moss and lichens

The moss and lichens enjoy this cool damp weather, even if I don't. Yesterday, some of the lichens were looking positively aqua in color. Frost has not yet nipped the little fern that's peeking out behind a fallen leaf.

Hey Gene: This is the kind of arrangement I am always on the lookout for. A most excellent shot! Everythings right, exactly by the leaf & twig & blade... and Northern light (diffused). You did it again!
HE did it again, I mean. :) kfH

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
