#9 looks like an Ilex because it is an Ilex. That leaf margin gave it away with the flower size.

FW, for #8, I put down Packera aurea (aka Senecio aureus), but it's just a guess without more info (and leaves). It could be the Senecio that Lorax mentioned, not sure.

Lorax, It's safe to share what you believe #10 to be.

I think the bonus photo is Sedum ternatum. I hope the guy comes back and gives us the answers to his quiz.

No t-shirt for this crowd!

That Cirsium / Bull thistle was a stumper. Supposedly it's been more common here than native thistles since the 1830's. And I'm not surprised I missed the Magnolia. But nobody got the possumhaw? We need a native holly awareness-raising campaign, or..something!...:eek:

Default Hilton Pond 05/22/09 (Flower Quiz IDs)

We got almost 50 entries in response to our "Mayflower Quiz 2009"--an on-line test in which folks tried to figure out identities of flowering plants we photographed during the first three weeks of May. We're pleased to provide IDs for the mystery plants in the current installment of "This Week at Hilton Pond," along with some additional natural history info about the plants in question.

To learn more about the "Mayflowers"--and to find out who won the contest--just visit our photo essay for 22-31 May 2009 at Mayflower Quiz 2009: The Answers (The Blossoms Of May)

While you're there, please scroll down for a list of all birds banded or recaptured during the period, as well as some general nature notes.

We've also finally worked out details for our first-ever hummingbird expedition to Guatemala in February 2010. Details are linked from the page above or at Guatemala Hummingbirds (Operation RubyThroat Expedition 2010) . We also have openings for our trips to Costa Rica and Belize.

Happy Nature Watching!

BILL
