Willow study update -- we have weeping willow and the (sandbar) willow from RRNP in a bowl with rocks and water. Waiting for roots. We pointed the twigs every which way to see if the Handbook of Nature Study was right about the plant setting down roots no matter which way it was oriented.
We also identified a wildflower/weed that we've seen for years and never knew the name of -- Shepherd's Purse. I did not have a macro lens at the time, so I'll have to snap a pic later.
