In the absence of leaves

Lichens and moss decorate winter-bare branches.

A shrub lichen, and a few tiny leaf lichens and unidentifiable yellow speck lichens.

A bristle moss. These grow on deciduous trees.

The spring leaves are beginning to poke through the tips of buds; soon the lichens and mosses will be hidden under a mass of bright green.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
