Bearded Lichen

On our last walk together, Clytie showed me the yellow lichen she'd found. I couldn't resist taking this photo. The spriggle of mossy grey beard next to the yellow cupped lichen seemed an unlikely marriage--I was intrigued and thought I would share it with you.

This inspires me to dream of a luxurious wide and draping kimono jacket made from a soft and crushed silk velvet in that olive moss color, adorned at the edges of sleeves and lapels in romantic manners with ruched laces and small passementerie ribbons in the greyish green-white and juicy green...
Only dreaming here ! I visited a couture fabric shop today...as you can imagine !

well, isn't that interesting. My goodness, I thought the colors and texture were curiously wonderful until I read the comment from Chaterlaie and her proposed garment and I was sweep away on the imagined feel of lush fabric and gorgeous design and that side of my nature diverted me.
You know I love your photography, but I am a fickle fabric-holic.

Opposites attract - so they say. But I'd really like to know who "they" are. Do you know? What are their names and addresses?

How pretty, looks like lace or string, very interesting.

A beautiful shot, sissie! Especially when enlarged, when one can see the amazing detail of lichen.
