    I was able to get out for a the day a week or so back and took quite a few pics and collected some more materials. I took along the Mora Eldris. I have really enjoyed this little knife.

    I started out with plant Id allot of these I recognized, but a few I was not sure about. If anyone has an idea on some of the plants anf fungi I was unable to Id or if I was incorrect in an Id Let me know I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks John

    I'll Start off with this Asianic Dayflower.

    That butterfly pea is beautiful. Is that some kind of orchid?

    I used the spine of the Mora Eldris to save this section of Iron Weed for a hand drill spindle.

    Another Aster I believe. This one was from another outing but I thought was a cool pic to include.
    [​IMG]

    Not sure on this one at all. I thought some type of bone set but the leaves don't connect like boneset.

    Leaves Pic round stem opposite leaves. Any Ideas.

    Great outing and nice job on the plant ID too. I've been wrestling with the ID of the one with the tiny white flowers too. I think I've got it narrowed down to later-flowering boneset or white snakeweed, but I'm not sure enough to call it. Your area has a lot of the same plants as mine. I enjoyed your posts.
