Lichen Covered Tree

Today is lovely and sunny but when it was wet this blossom tree showed up quite spectacularly with its coating of lichen. Hawke's Bay is usually so dry that it always amazes me how many trees have lichen coated branches.

  1. The new Castle book has a whole section on lichens. I can remember looking at lichens under a microscope at Auckland Uni. Very unusual life forms.
