Check out this crazy chartreuse-colored lichen-ish stuff. I found it about 2 hours into a hike in Yosemite. It was snuggling next to a crazy bright orange lichen, as if they were in cahoots to show off the most vivid color Mother Nature could create. I pocketed a little piece of it that now graces a shelf at home. I have a thing for decorating with items that are a) free b) from nature c) unique. We all don’t want to look like we’ve walked out of Pottery Barn ( … I wrote Potty Barn first, ha!).
Oh, and it hasn’t changed color. Astonishing.
I appreciate life’s little treasures like this.
