On a recent trip to a local plant nursery, my son decided to have a toddler tantrum. He refused to get into his carseat so I walked around the parking lot with him until he calmed down. As we were walking over by the dumpster, we saw an old wooden shelf that had this amazing lichen and fungus growing on it! It was like a little "garden" tucked away just for us. If not for his tantrum, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy this hidden treasure. :)
I just KNEW it was from the Pacific Northwest! My neighbor's old decrepit porch looks just like that with the same lichens and mushroom-like growths. I have taken many photos of it!

On a recent visit to my parents' house, my daughter wanted me to take her photo by the weeping cherry tree in the backyard. While I was out there I noticed the little clumps of moss growing on the fence and thought it looked neat peeking out from between the blossoms.
I was recently housesitting for my mom and as I was leaving I came across this lovely sight! These tiny tuffs of moss are no bigger than a dime and were covered in droplets of rain.
