I’ve always thought lichen is beautiful. I get lots of questions about why it grows where it does and if it harms what it’s growing on. Here’s a great article that discusses those questions and more.
“Lichens do not harm their substrates, or take nutrients from the trees or shrubs they attach to. Look, but do not disturb them; take a photo, not a sample. Live and let live.”
Happy digging in the dirt! 💚🥀
