The Lichen Room

Posted by Picasa

To the untrained eye this looks like a half-bath full of boxes. To those of us who are in the know, it looks like a lichen sample storeroom. Treebeard and I played host to a couple of lichenologists for the past five days and we had a great time. I'll try to put together a post about our experience within the next couple of days...for now I just wanted to let you know that I hadn't fallen off the face of the earth ;)

Can't wait! I bet your swamp is a great place for lichen-watching... Maybe you'll inspire me to get back in gear on lichens, a great fascination of mine.

Oooo - can't wait. It seems like suddenly lichens are in - everywhere I turn, there's another story or photo or comment about lichens. Is it the yen of the desparate naturalist for something green in a snowy world (not that you are snowy down there in your swamp)? Maybe. Or maybe it's just that we are all keen to learn about something "new" - warm fuzzies and flowering beauties being old hat by now.
