Monday plant tour

Not the industrial kind—the botanic kind.

Stately oak

Tree-shape reflects the species and the individual’s growing conditions. This specimen, here in a park without neighbors, is broad and symmetrical…and bigger and more expansive than such oaks typically are, especially in a forest setting.


This one was almost that immense, but no more. Calling all breakdown organisms!

Grass backlit

Without a doubt, the light was terrific today, and the sun toasty.

Lichens railing

Even these (foliose? squamulose?) lichens were soaking it in.
