RE: Warning about Oriental symbols/Lichen study

Thank you for answering in comments about my warning re: e-mails with oriental symbols.  THESE ARE NOT ANONYMOUS.  THE SYMBOLS ARE RIGHT IN THE FROM: LINE.  So they will not show up as Anonymous.  You would however have to agree to POST their comment.  Thank you for your response and hopefully no one else will publish them as I created the warning after seeing a huge paragraph comment from one of these on another blogger's site.  When I went to Page-translate, it auto detected and showed the words in English.  That is when I decided to write the warning.  Together we bloggers can stop these people from using our blogs for their own gain.  THANKS!

  Yesterday during a gentle rain, a huge limb fell from the tree in the back yard.  There was not even a breeze and it was frightening to see how large it was and we were thankful that no one was out there when it fell.  Once on the ground, we were able to observe a wonderful study in Lichen on the branch.  It was a fairyland of fern-like growth that is very beautiful.
I just loved the fairy-like quality of the growth and could picture tiny winged creatures sitting among them.      
Lichen: small flowerless plants forming crust on rocks, trees, etc.
Although there is no flower, the delicate structure and different shades of green and gray are quite beautiful.

This very wet Mockingbird thought the fallen limb was just for him as he perched and checked it out!                  Thank you for visiting as always and please come again soon.  Have a wonderful day!
Kerrie ♥

Thanks Kerrie for the info on the Comments. Such a shame for this to be happening.

Isn't nature wonderful and magical in it's enormous and tiny world? Great picture of the mockingbird.

I just wanted to stop and thank you for your visits to CollectInTexas Gal and tell you how much I enjoy your comments and visiting your blog....Sue

Yes, I'm glad the branch didn't hit anyone - it probably got soaked from the rain and too heavy and then broke off.

It happened to us one day - the branch fell right through the roof and landed in the kitchen in front of the stove - thankfully it was midnight and everyone was asleep, but it rained inside till in the morning when we could call someone to fix the roof...

Can you imagine if I were up having a midnight snack?

Those Lichens are very interesting indeed - like fungy growing in all sorts of interesting shapes.

Have a wonderful day, and be blessed!

Hello Kerrie! You have such a lovely blog! Thanks so much for the warning ~ I've been having to delete those myself!

I'm so happy you are going to join us on the 25th for the Wedding blog party! It should be so much fun to see what everyone shares that day!

Big TX Hugs,

Thanks for the warning. I had figured they were spam but had no idea how bad they were. I don't print anything that's not in English.

The pictures are just beautiful!

Kerrie, I already thanked you for this SPAM Comments posting, in your past entry. An additional thank you is due.

I posted about these weird foreign Comments, after seeing one in another blog today. And got some comments on this. Some mentioned baring Anon. Comments. And it rang a bell.

For sure! In this post, you say: THESE ARE NOT ANONYMOUS. THE SYMBOLS ARE RIGHT IN THE FROM: LINE. So they will not show up as Anonymous. You would however have to agree to POST their comment."

Thank you again, and I must jump right back and put this on my blog. Your info. With a link to your posts about this, of course. !!!!!!!! You are the one who brought this issue to my attention, this time around. And you have the most info, on it.

Gentle hugs...
