The grain of the wood where it has been cut forms an interesting pattern with the growth of the lichens and the small cluster of almost dots of white which may be the first stage of the lichen growth.
It was interesting to see all the growth on the wood pile. Some lichens were on the bark while other where the logs had been split.
This was one of the most interesting growth patterns on the logs, it was like a necklace around the log, unfortunately my photos did not turn out well.
Mushrooms growing in the split of the wood.
All photos are on our North Carolina day trip from the above wood pile.
