I was likin the lichen Kitty
They grow in the most inhospitable parts of the landscape. Real survivors. There were some lovely little ones inside the summit cairn on a Glenshee Munros I was on last year. They cling to gaps in the rock and produce these tiny little coloured 'spores', for want of a better word, which look like tiny flowers.
Some plants are big and blousy and you can see them for miles. Others need to be sat beside and examined in detail, close up. All part of the wonderful plant tapestry.
Bit like people I suppose
