When the hailstones stop rattling the window and steam rises from fences warmed by wintery sun, I venture into the garden. I am searching for lichens – unobtrusive life, slowly spreading its complex symbiotic existance across stones and branches, in all weathers, without fuss.
An embroidery workshop later in the month requires pictures of lichen for inspiration. So I had a look around the garden for what I could find. And also researched a bit about just what kind of life they are. More information here .
