Great Roundup of Readings about Plants

Sally at Foothills Fancies has posted the 39th edition of Berry Go Round, the blog carnival about plants. It’s a superb piece of writing and points to lots examples of good reading.

Two of my favorites will give you a sense of the range of posts that Sally has featured. One is a study of the changes in tree canopy at Columbus Circle. Having lived in New York City for a number of years and having spent my share of time at the southwestern corner of Central Park, I found the research and photographs fascinating.

The other is a post featuring Erythrina crista-galli – and a fabulous photograph – from Argentina. I’ve seen several species of the Erythrina genus here in Panama, all of them interesting, and every time I work at identifying the species, I run across descriptions of E. crista-galli. Now I see why it’s such a beloved flower.

So, go enjoy BGR #39!

About Mary

I spent a few years at sea, and I never came back from a cruise without having learned something new about the ocean or what lived in it. After retiring to Panama, I began to learn something new about the tropical savanna ecosystem nearly every day I stepped outside. I focused on plants, those marvelous signs of life. Now I'm in my second retirement, living in Sicily. I'm leaving my plant studies online for those who have found them useful.
