#2 Was tricky in its own way. The green and red were definitely lichen in bloom. The brown is Tamarack Tree (Larch) leaves lying on the ground. The Tamarack drop there leaves every year and are found in the bogs in Ohio. They do look like a pine tree as they grow. We had some great guesses from Ann who said lichen and pine needles (check out her lake post), Gaelyn who knew the lichen was blooming (check out her trip into the canyon and her perm) and Darla who said it was dead leaves (she has blooming in her Florida garden and butterflies). Really neat job by the three of you, a trio of smart ladies.
