Sunday Morning in Lynn Woods
There weren't many wilflowers in the woods, but there were lots of other beautiful things to see. Here are just some of them, many of which I don't even know the names of. I'll try to come back when I have time and identify many of these.




A bracket or turkey-tail-like fungus


Another fungus


Decorative leaves from Rattlesnake Plantain, an orchid


I should know the name, but don't






Tripe lichen looks like peeling paint on the rocks




Stunningly beautiful fungi in the woods

Dan Small, Fred Sullivan and I visited as many remote wetlands as we could to look for Pitcher Plant habitat. We haven't found those plants yet but we did find a sphagnum bog full of Sundews, another kind of carnivorous plant.
