Growing in moss (Kindbergia?). Fibrilose stem, no obvious bruise or smell.
In full and glorious bloom on the north side.
My first of the year.
Soredia laminal, pseudocyphellae abundant and obvious. On oak bark, Q. lobata I think.
Several in the area were in early to near peak bloom .
They seem hit pretty hard, maybe by the drought.
Weird, kinda foul odor though, still with a hint of citrus. Under interior live oak, poison oak
Growing from the stump of what looked like toyon.
Seemed to be growing from a hard white mass of mycelia (?) in the soil under toyon. Arctostaphylos glaucus and interior live oak. Fibrilose stem, no strong odor.nearby.
Toyon, interior live oak nearby
Looking for golden hairstreak caterpillars but not finding any...
Humans and their works. Large group of daffodils here, maybe 100 clumps
