This summer has been unusually dry--we've had something like 2 inches of rain the entire summer (we average over 3 inches per month). As a mushroom guy, I've found it quite depressing. One day I woke up and the yard was a bit damp. I quickly moved from place to place to try to find live revived by the moisture. This may be Mycena corticola.
The north facing side of the shingle roof of our shed is thickly decorated with British soldier lichen.

Ants in general don't seem to be suffering in the drought, at least it seems many species are doing fine.
