Lichen Fence



I was inspired by Laurie's blog, Creating Pictures in my Mind. To post my own colorful Lichen photos at Corksrew Swamp. She took some very interesting pictures of lichen in a cemetary. I'm no lichen expert and really don't know what these fascinating patterns of mold are. Lichen, mold, fungus or maybe the artwork of a famous fence painter. I didn't do it, honest! Below I've posted more photos. So that you can get a feel for exactly where this artwork is growing. On a beautifully weathered fence that meanders through a maze of Cypress trees and Mangrove swamps.

I saw Laurie's, too--on a stone angel's face and decollete, in yellow. The fence is pretty: like mosaic tile with the patterns traced in orange.
