Lichen?

sunnysideuphill(5)April 30, 2011

While pruning Polareis today, I saw what looks exactly like the grey-green lichen you find in the woods on tree trunks, on some of the older canes. Could it be lichen? Is it a sign of something wrong with the rose? It's in a sunny, exposed, breezy location, not at all like the woods....
