Some light #botanizing in the Pacific Northwest with @littleriverprince

I love finding mounds of Conocephalum liverworts. What great little plants!

For once I didn't have to bend over to look at a flower. This plant was almost 6' tall. This is Salvia azurea, Giant Blue Sage. It's a grassland plant and we found this growing in an upland longleaf pine savanna. #longleafpinesavanna #grasslandplants #grasslands #nativeplants #nativespecies #nativewildflowers #salvia #botanizing #queernaturalist #lgbtnature #queernature #gaynature #naturenerd #inaturalist #naturalhistory

New England Aster on a cold, wet fall day. Most asters are tough for me to differentiate, but this flower has an embarrassingly large amount of rays, is taller than most, and the plant overall has a tough and vigorous bearing. These were taken at a place I hadn't been before, Clover Lick Barrens, near the Ohio river in Indiana. It's a good 5 mile hike with half of it going through grassland and with views of the surrounding hills. #newenglandaster #symphyotrichumnovaeangliae #asters #fallflowers #violetflowers #indianaoutdoors #botanizing #botany #hikeindiana #macroflowers #plantnerd #wildflowersofinstagram #wildflowers #growingwild

Botanizing off the supermarket shelves! Here are some of today’s cool finds. 1. The monstrous Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is the largest fruit that comes from a tree (giant pumpkins are largest). 2. Fresh chickpeas/garbanzo beans (Cicer arietinum)still in their pods. 3. Dragonfruit or pitaya (Hylocereus undatus), the fruit of a cactus. 4. The starchy corms of Taro (Colocasia esculenta), one of the earliest cultivated plants. 5. Muscadine grapes (Vitis rotundifolia) are native to the southern United States. They’re sweet and juicy, with a delicious aroma, though the skin is rather thick and leathery.

This little lovely is Comparettia falcata, an epiphytic orchid native to the warmer parts of the Western Hemisphere, including Mexico, Central America, the West Indies and South America. It has long been assumed that the Comparettia were largely hummingbird pollinated, but this is based on mere speculation, a single bird, and one embarrassing case of mistaken identity. In reality, Comparettia are more likely to rely on butterflies for their reproductive needs. This is just one of the amazing orchid stories you are going to hear on tomorrow's episode of the In Defense of Plants Podcast. Subscribe and check it out!

Not much going on here in the way of wildflowers. Frost this morning, it's long beyond prime season at 11,000 feet. This wild strawberry seems awfully optimistic to flower this late, but kudos to it for trying. I'll be back on Halloween to pick it.

Up close with the vegetative and flowering portions of the Sierra Stonecrop (Sedum obtusatum) from a few months ago in Nevada County. These native high elevation succulents are as beautiful as they are impressive, poking out of every available strip of granitic sand on wind blasted hillsides.

Here's one for all the sedge heads. This is the state endangered [S1] dwarf spike rush (Eleocharis parvula). There are only 2 sites for this plant in Ohio one of our rareat spike rushes. This spike rushes range is very scattered all over the US and does not seem to frequent in any parts of it's range. The preferred habitat is mudflats where it's almost always submerged. .

Blessed Equinox...
Meditations w the standing stones of Acharn and climbing the fairy crystal mountain of Schiehallion, which snook my pendulum from my pocket...
The role of the teacher is in opening the channel, sprouting the seed of knowledge buried within... allowing the student to see, understand, cultivate and bring to fruition what they already know...

I've now come across all of Ohio's recently split "Spiranthes cernua" complex here they are and how to tell them!
1-3. S. arcisepala my personal favorite. These seem to be much larger than the other 2 species. The lip of the flower seems to be much bigger as well. The flowers are also all white.
4-6. S. incurva the underside is a creamy yellow color. The sepals point upwards.
7-9. S. cernua the sepals hang over the flower. This species also has a much more southern range only being in unglaciated Ohio.

Some photos from last Tuesday’s “botanizing walk” around the grounds of the Frost Stone House Museum, with Bennington College professor and ecologist Dr. Kerry Woods! We’re glad the rain held off. Thanks to Dr. Woods for sharing his time and expertise. #benningtoncollege #ecology #botany #botanizing #robertfrost #kerrywoods #froststonehouse #writershouse #housemuseum #shaftsbury #bennington #vermont #nature #naturewalk

Regrann from @steffleigh - Scorpiontail (Heliotropium angiospermum) displaying its showy and curling white blooms in an open part of the hammock at Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park in North Miami. This shrub-like wildflower blooms all year round and serves as a nectar plant for many butterflies.

Did you know you can eat these weirdos? They're the fruits of Kousa dogwood, a common ornamental tree in DC. The outside is like dragon skin (i.e. too tough to eat🐉🐊) but you can suck out the pulp from inside for a sweet treat. Some are better than others, so if you get one with a gritty texture don't be put off! But do find a different tree with tastier fruits. And remember, an IG post is not a substitute for proper identification, so do some #botanizing... 🌿🌾🌳🍃🍒

Light Box Science w/ Autumn Leaves 🍂 🍁 🍃💡 While exploring the leaves, we found out that we can see their veins clearer and clearer if we turned on the light of the light box and turned off the light of the room.
