Closed for business

The Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica) was closed for business today. I don’t blame it with temp being near 41 degrees around noon. Temperature kept falling in the afternoon so by 5pm it was 38 and ’twas windy all day…brrrrr! 


The stinkhorn (Phallus) was out however.

I cut it open to take a gander at its inners. Hollow and gelatinous.

Colorful Hackberry berries!

Gall on a Hackberry. 

Shelf fungus.
Every time I look under the microscope, I’m awestruck. Watch this video of a moss opening up when I added a drop of water. Amazing since it had been in a dark envelope for a year!

Keep looking!
