Epiphytic Scotland

Epiphytes (things growing up off the ground usually in trees) are much more common in tropical rainforests than temperate ones.  But when we find them we enjoy them.  The most obvious ones here are lichens which are great indicators of fantastic clean air.  This on a thirty + year old Cox’s Orange Pippin.  Planted before we got here.
