Pixie Cups, Cladonia fimbriata

About 15 years ago I arranged some rocks to line the perimeter of a turn-around on our driveway. At the time, I had no idea that I was creating ideal habitat for Pixie Cup lichens. This photo shows the results of many years of slow but steady growth.

Wow! That is a spectacular little garden of lichens and moss. I love pixie cups and am always happy to see them. I hope I can find a display like this one sometime.
