Nice, but misleading. Lichens are by definition of what they are - a primitive symbiotic organism consisting of a fungus and a single celled algae - are NOT a flowering plant, which in evolutionary terms is much more advanced. What I can see in your snap is a mixture of lichen and an angiosperm with a pretty little purple flower.
