Here's my #green contribution! A somewhat alien looking #lichen found in the garden! 😱👽👻👀

It's liverwort - used to get great swathes of it down the paths in the polytunnels when I worked at the nursery! It is rather other-worldly, I quite like it! 😁

That's it!! I've amended it. Thanks. Kind of gruesome looking 😁 @tash74

I rather like it too. I mostly get the Crescent-cup Liverwort which has little crescent moon-shapes instead of the cups that yours has.

10 years ago we bought a house and the wall was covered in this stuff. It took me ages to get it all off and then it destroyed my wall doing it lol

@tiggrx it came into the garden on a Passion flower I bought. It's kind of interesting to look at but does look 'other worldly'!
