Christmas is Early!

 We had a family Christmas this weekend!
Rain had been predicted but we had a glorious sunny day instead!
 On a walk, we found some beautiful blooming lichen!
I've never seen it in bloom and we appreciated these small (head of a pin small!) flowers!
 There were tons of deer moss or Reindeer Moss which is a fungus!
 Lichen on the old RR ties fence.
 A partial skull and torso bone of an armadillo!
 Look how sharp those teeth are?!
Nothing like a walk up the gully!
                                                              What a perfect day...


  1. Looks like a gorgeous day! The flora is beautiful, too.

  2. I had no idea that lichen bloomed - amazing!

  3. How wonderful!!! What amazing finds you came upon. I bet the Grands were in awe of the bones. How cool is that?

  4. So glad you had a beautiful day.

  5. It looks like you had a wonderful time and a beautiful day to spend together. An armadillo skull? How crazy is that?

  6. If you ever want to try natural dyeing, lichen is a great thing to use

  7. I didn't know lichens bloomed. Cool stuff you found on your walk today.

  8. Lichens in bloom are phenomenal . Have only seen it in Spring in Chicago area. So lovely. Happy early festivities!

  9. Is there some significance to the staging of the kids' photo? It seems the two in the middle are being held captive by rockets manned by the others. LOL Such wonderful discoveries to find!
