But the most common lichens we have are the bluish-gray leaf Lichens like these. They form patches and grow outwards slowly, usually in a somewhat circular shape, on many of the boulders.
Unbelievable mid-November weather here. Our two cold rainy days are over, and today was warm and sunny. Perfect late fall day to be outside. I got all the driveway stakes in place ready for snowblowing when the time comes. Later I walked the dog through the farm next door, where the soybean crop was cleaned off several weeks ago, and now next year's crop of winter wheat is just up 3-4" and bright green in the late afternoon sun.
