Lichens are not sexy!

The snow is hanging on in the garden even with the warm temperatures that we have been having. As I inspected the garden, looking for something interesting, I stumbled upon these lichens. They covered most of the trees, in a bland and uniform way. What was striking was the virtual absence of color. When I looked in detail I could see that some of the features showed round structures all over the lichen. I have seen lichens that were greenish in color and some were more yellow. But these ones were more like silver.
