...your two year-old already knows the difference between moss and lichen. He gets it right about 80 % of the time, which isn't bad considering he has a 50/50 chance :)
I found the above two pictures on my camera one day. Clearly, Drew took them, and not me. First one is of the oak outside our front door, sporting a thick layer of moss. Second, the remnants of a prayer flag, slowly disintegrating, as prayer flags are wont (and meant) to do.
Below is a stick Silas picked up on a walk we took back in April. "Lichen. Moss." Indeed.
