Lichens at School

A Shady Corner of the School Grounds

While waiting for the Doris Robinson Primary School Christmas performance we had a look round the school grounds.  We came across a tree with an impressive collection of crustose lichens.  There was also an interesting fluffy bracket fungus on the same tree.

    Some lichens are more beautiful than many flowers.
