(1) Hemlock Ring It was brought to my attention that the Hemlock Ring Pattern has a mistake — the mistake was in the original pattern written in 1942. And I know this for a fact because Diane brought a vintage pattern book to knitting group and the pattern was there, mistake and all.

He even points to research indicating a tree’s ability to alleviate headaches in humans seeking relief by communing with trees. The author points to a number of studies that have shown that children show significant psychological and physiological improvement in terms of their health and well being when they interact with plants and trees.

Lichen A lichen (/ˈlaɪkən/,[1] sometimes /ˈlɪtʃən/ [2]) is a composite organism consisting of a fungus (the mycobiont) and a photosynthetic partner (the photobiont or phycobiont) growing together in a symbiotic relationship. The photobiont is usually either a green alga (commonly Trebouxia) or cyanobacterium (commonly Nostoc).[3] The morphology, physiology and biochemistry of lichens are very different from those of the isolated fungus and alga in culture. Lichens occur in some of the most extreme environments on Earth—arctic tundra, hot deserts, rocky coasts, and toxic slag heaps. However, they are also abundant as epiphytes on leaves and branches in rain forests and temperate woodland, on bare rock, including walls and gravestones, and on exposed soil surfaces (e.g., Collema) in otherwise mesic habitats. The roofs of many buildings have lichens growing on them.
