Little lichens and mossy redwoods

image

We had a few days of fog and drizzle up here in Bonny Doon but what the wind blew down were little gems of color and life!

Here is a piece of redwood bark with about 3 different types of lichen attached to it.

Here are a few others. I’ve never seen the bloomed bits before. They are quite colorful in contrast to the decomposing redwood needles. Finding these nuggets of miss and lichen was like looking for Easter eggs!
