The faintest, mildest, least-noticeable of all things can still have tremendous impact. Take lichens, for example: the most wonderful of flowers, even gardens, on a microscopic scale. Strong enough to wear down stone itself over time, but so delicate and dainty and fairylike that they are rich and glorious even in their seeming fragility.
what a stunning observation! Sometimes it is the smallest things that are the most amazing.
Isn’t that the truth. Kind of like what happens when you do, or don’t, add the right amount of baking powder to a cake recipe, isn’t it! 🙂
Spectacular pictures! Love the vivid color and the details. I have a whole new admiration for lichens, thanks to you!
They’re so intimate, in their way. I feel like I’m being handed tiny, magical bouquets full of secrets when I get to come in close and see the wonderfully tiny flora in their strongholds on stone and concrete and brick and branch. I’m glad you enjoyed these ones, too. 🙂
Aren’t they sweet! Washington has a wider array of lichens than I have tended to find in Texas so far, but I’ve seen some beautiful ones here, too, so I continue to marvel at their beauties.
Kathryn, have a fantastic weekend!
I am truly looking forward to the weekend, even though it’s going to be a full, BUSY one! Hope yours is lovely, Anna!
Kathryn, dont forget to Breathe!
Say hi to Richard and have a nice sunday!
Tack, Anna! I’m trying to keep myself steady and not let the wild schedule take my breath away. 😀
kram! Vi ses snart! 😀 😀
What lovely photos of a quiet little being that hardly gets noticed. Very cute!
So much amazing detail and character in such tiny packages!!!
