Grasses and gardening

I am hoping to use this at home time to learn to identify the plants that grow near me. This includes grasses. So I am looking closer at some things. I found that I have been misidentifying a grass. I need to look closer so I can tell them apart. Nice.

Flowers of the past

My path in science began long, long ago when I was school age. I took an internship at the museum of natural history where I worked for a while in the herbarium before deciding that wasn’t the life for me. I ended up getting a degree in botany anyway, although it was focused largely on molecular and not anatomical studies, but as time goes on, I have rediscovered my love of observing plants, and may even rebuild my plant press.

I still have the wildflower book that Dr. Chuck Finsley gave me back when I started. It is battered now, but much loved.
