LICHENS, MOSS, AND FUNGUS
I wanted to share some photos of what many of the branches are covered with around this time of year. I don't know what types of lichens, moss, or fungus these are. I do know that they do not harm the plants they grow on. The bottom pictures is of soil with some type fungus or moss. By mid Summer they usually dissapear or shrivil down to where they are not noticable. To me they are really cool. Almost like a organic collage. Certainly something interesting to look at before all the buds start to swell and leave start to unfurl.
