This looks like spring has sprung
In another life I would love to be a lichenologist. Beautiful certainly, but because they seem to be able to exist on almost any surface, in almost any climate they might hold a key for the future health of the planet. I was saying this to my 9 year old grandson and he said he would just have to be a lichenologist instead of me!
That’s an interesting thought – maybe holding a key for the future AND what one would like to have been in another life…

Oh dear, I thought you might have asked that…hard to say as there are so many different avenues that would appeal. A traditonally male occupation…psychology…gardening…the list is probably endless… so who knows?!

It’s fun to get up in the morning and say – today I will be a ……. giving myself permission to have a play day in those different realms.
That’s a good idea, Sandra – and I am off to be a Bricklayer once I am up to date with my IAVOM comments!!
Looks like blossom! Is it blackthorn? That is what attracts the lichen most here.
Hard to tell what trees they are – they are on my Mum’s island and in a dip below the level of the road so would be difficult to access. Quite possibly hawthorn or maybe blackthorn
