Likin’ the Lichen*

I realize that this is not lichen, but some kind of bracket, fungus, but I am likin’ it.

When I returned to Kilbourne Grove from Barbados this spring, one of the tree stumps in the Flora Glade had become covered with brackets. I happen to think that they are very beautiful, lucky it is not my wine glass rest. We purposely had the other tree cut level(ish) when the tree blew down in a storm, just for that purpose.

See the big slice of tree trunk next to it, another casualty from a storm, but the perfect seat from which I can survey all the weeds.

 And that tree next to it, the next to go. There will certainly be no shortage of firewood whenever I want it.

(*This is a phrase we always used to use when I worked at East of Eliza, it described anything ‘woodsy’.)
