I removed one something like two years ago and am still finding runners shooting up even though I pull them out regularly. You'd think it would die from lack of gathering nutrients but it is still as aggressive as it ever was.

Another fascinating preserve and very nice photos!

I guess I need a goat in my yard. The poison ivy keeps popping up in new spots all the time.

And at Bartel Grassland, we have Leafy Spurge. Supposedly, goats like it. It's a really tough one to get rid of with herbicides, and fire doesn't touch it, just comes back from the roots that go WAY down, like a prairie plant.

I could have sworn that I did a thread on Adkins a few years back, but cannot find it anywhere. Anyhow, let me dig up some photos from years past (pretend there is a swirly pattern in front of your eyes while I do a little time traveling).

Okee dokey. Found some. These were taken a few years ago in winter. Although a little cold that January day (hahaha--it was probably in the mid-40s), the climate is pretty mild there so I thought it was lovely. Bear in mind that I usually do macros, and rarely think to do scenery, so most of these photos could have been taken anywhere. But they were taken at my beloved Adkins Arboretum.Adkins Arboretum, Maryland-img_0585.jpg

Adkins Arboretum, Maryland-img_0589.jpg These banners were part of some public programming done at the arboretum. I only know that the text is supposed to be prayers. I thought it was kind of cool.

Adkins Arboretum, Maryland-img_0650.jpg A splash of green, and educational signage.

Adkins Arboretum, Maryland-img_0691.jpg I've always called these turkey tails. Hopefully one of you will set me straight.

Those look more like False Turkeytails, Stereum ostrea. They often have algae growing on them and when they're actively growing, they're more colorful than Turkeytails. If you look at their pore surface, the pores are so small that you can't see them.
