Day 2044 - We Now Pause For Nature Identification

Greetings, Bloggy Field and Streamers!

I know that bar codes are useful, and a great invention, but face it, they’re kind of BORING.

One little strip with black and white lines on it can uniquely identify just about anything. IF the bar code is cataloged in a computer system, that is.

Bar codes weren’t invented when nature decided to make everything unique.

Have you really NOTICED ‘nature identification’? It’s very cool.

Each seed, leaf, nut, and blossom is unique and identifiable. Even among trees, acorns and pine cones and pine needles and bark are all different. Even snowflakes are all different.

This blog idea arose when Charlie and I were researching Ragweed vs. Goldenrod. They are very different, even though most people confuse them because they are flowering at the same time.

Mother Nature ROCKS, dontcha think? Your homework is to get a field guide or peruse the web and go LOOK AT NATURE.

(No, you don't have to if you don't want to)

Where are all the bloggy readers?? I am way out of practice with my plants and stuff. Couldn't tell you what most stuff is. Sad. Need to brush up!!!
