I'm Lichen this!!

I have had a bit of a break this last couple of weeks, a week in beautiful Devon
 then a week with my family in Northern Ireland.

Whilst taking a walk around the country lanes in Devon I 
came across some beautiful lichen growing on a wooden fence.

It is very reminiscent of Barnacles growing on a boat hull or rocks on the shore!

I also came across this very dessicated Hydrangea head.

It was great to find that this head had been missed when deadheading and had 
been left to decay,  allowing nature through death to create a beautiful delicate 
ethereal flower head.
