Fungi and lichens

If you click on groups then click on fungi,scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see Useful links to Lichens,click on his name Alan Silverside lastdragon org.The site will come up and them click your yellow star at the top right corner of screen and that's now added to your favourites.

Hope that makes sense

Make sure you bookmark Jenny's (Gardener's) site too:

It's what my site would be like if I had her photographic and web design skills, and has lots of things I am jealous that she's seen!
