[Spreading Jacob's Ladder~Greek-Valerian]
So this thing...this finding and identifying the flowers and plants native to my area has become quite a hobby to me.
I find myself taking notes as to when I find these plants and where. I include the conditions I find them under also.
It has given me a whole new appreciation for the forest that surrounds me.
Naw, I'm not going to go out and hug up a tree or anything...
But I started to notice things each year in the woods. I'd stop and admire them, then wonder what they were.
Finally I decided to learn what these plants are.
Some of the common names are definitely worth looking into!
Downy Rattlesnake Plantain
I hope to get some fantastic photos and compile them together and make a nice photo book with descriptions of how, when, and where to find them.
