Gathering Lichen

Each year during the days preceding Christmas, the collection of lichen has become a ritual enjoyed by the whole family.

Treading on the stony path surrounded by pine trees, rock roses and fragrant cascades.
Then wandering the woods, hoping to find some nice grayish balls and other boughs which will bring a natural touch to the house.
I delight in this unique place located in a wood, which at every step I take, reminds me of the landscapes of Marcel Pagnol.

This year, the harvest took place under the watchful eye of our new companion.
And once arranged on an old garden chair, this one takes himself for a young raindeer and devours a little each day.

This is so beautiful what you found in the wood. Last year I have made a wreath from it. Look at this link I send to you, you can see it:

I think this is the same moss.
The pictures are so wonderful!

Nice evening
