It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of lichen. Here’s a variety on a bench.

The One for me © Lynn Wiles 2021
While throwing sticks for my dog, I noticed this cup like lichen and decided to bring it home to photograph.

A New Year © Lynn Wiles 2021
And things have not become magically better. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but did decide about a month ago to start collecting random bits of nature and start a sketchbook with 15 minutes of drawing or painting a day. And in the last week, I have started exploring the macro capabilities of my newish camera. The in focus part of this lichen is less than 5 mm and I thought I could draw this life-size. Haha. Since we are all going to be stuck at home for the time being, wishing you all a Happy New and Creative Year. Even if it means bringing the outdoors inside.

When Pink is Red © Lynn Wiles 2018
The buds of the redbud tree do start off red (or magenta) and the flowers are pink (or pale purple), giving the impression of pink. There’s also lots of lichen and a green caterpillar on one of the buds – squint to see it.
