Umbilicaria americana

Umbilicaria americana

Slowly slowly I’ve been collecting pieces of this lichen throughout the summer.  It feels so precious I only ever harvest a little, and usually there is quite a bit at the bottom cliffs that has fallen.  But I am really looking forward to creating a dye bath with them once I’ve got a jar-full.

Please, if you are harvesting from the wild, harvest responsibly, harvest gently!
