The weather has been mild for the past few weeks until now, which is unusual here in December. In response to the warmer and wetter conditions several of the species growing on the bark and wood of my installation have either continued to grow or some new species have colonized and are doing well. You can see a ‘new’ colonizing brown shiny fungus (Auricularia sp.)in the photograph above.
It’s as though the whole piece is thriving, living and settling in. Not at all what I expected. Only the ivy has wilted a little, until recently.
