Like fungus, lichens fascinate me, I think they have a beauty all of their own. I know that lichens are a unique combination of fungus and an alga living as one unit. I have also read that you only find them where the conditions are absolutely perfect. We inherited this tree when we moved here, it is a maple, its leaves are pink and green and it gets the most beautiful seed pods hanging from it in autumn. Does anyone know what type it is?
