New Year’s Day was gorgeous (I’ve got some pics from that day for another post), but since then it’s been grey grey grey. Mild and dry though, so can’t complain too much. In the bleak midwinter, you have to look a little harder to see the colour. It’s still there though… take these lichens for instancelichen colours

Growth might be dormant at the moment, but it’s all there, ready to burst out when the time is right…

Finally, not everything has to be colourful to be beautiful…
