Thanks for reviving this thread, Gloria.

I miss Tim. Hope he'll get around to posting again. Thanks for the update.

I saw the list when I read the book, but it is great to have it so handy right here to reference again and again. Thanks, Lib.

Nice aid for those who do not know the natives...

...and for those just getting into it: there are a LOT more where those came from...that is hardly an exhaustive list.

While searching for something else, I came across this old thread...and I thought I'd bump it up to the top.

I'd like to document all of the native trees, shrubs, and forbs with names and pictures. I'd like to state whether or not it was already here, I added it, or it volunteered on its own. In addition to the plants, I'd like to document (with pictures when possible) what has visited here, been sighted from here, or, better yet, has nested or made its home here.

Has anyone else done any documenting of any kind?

I bet you'll get yours posted before I do mine!

I need to become more systematic, so thanks for the inspiration.

We now have a sedge (I think) sprouting near the house in a spot where the gutter leaks. (Yes, we need new gutters this year--sigh.) It has a little white blossom that reminds me of the white-topped sedge I remember from Florida, only much smaller. No pictures yet: I hope it is still blooming once the rain stops pouring.

I'm fascinated with all the volunteers we're getting.

Congratulations on the new sedge.

(Native) volunteers are great!

I don't think I'm very systematic, but I'm hoping I'll start documenting...and maybe posting some of it here.

Sedge update: it's still not identified, but I am much less excited about it. Turns out that the blossom was one that had fallen from the nearby amsonia; the sedge bloom is nondescript and bears an unfortunate resemblance to that of nutsedge, though it is much smaller and the plant stems themselves are much finer.
