The only reason I said oak was because it looked so strong,red and hardy. I didn't think they had runners either.....

Perhaps a gall. They can be rather strange.

Now you got me wondering... It does sort of look like that now that you mention it but it wasn't hollow. It was hard and solid.
I collect the hollow ball shaped galls in that area when I find them. That is what made me bend down to pick it up in the first place.
Why I don't know... I guess I just find them interesting.
I was surprised to find it connected to a runner so instead of pocketing it I took its photo for the sight to I.D. if possible.

I noticed a thicker grass like plant growing along the river.
It looked to be a chive by its shape. Upon picking and sniffing one I can clearly see it is of the allium family. I'm wondering what type it could be growing out in the wild.
I never noticed any blooms in that area and I do pass by it quite frequently.

I'm sure it's not a leek as they would have a wider leaf....

I dug one up to show its roots. (I replanted it afterwards) Is it edible?

I almost forgot about this one, it's probably Allium canadense:

Thanks swampy.
I'll try to remember to take a walk later on and capture their bloom.

Hi,

Sure looks like an oak gall to me. Other galls that catch my eye are the ones in goldenrod stems in the winter. They look like a beach ball stuck in a straw! Blueberry bushes also get galls.

Have any of you ever seen an oak gall with dozens of short pointy rootlets coming out of it? I didn't know they did that, but I saw some this spring.

You're not talking about these hairy looking things are you?

I found them growing on leaves last fall.
I was wondering if they were called Spoangia.

Any idea what kind of potted plant this is?
Here's a new one to identify.-dscf9080.jpg
My best guess would be, it's in the poinsettia family?

A few small ones (Same or different?) growing around the central one.
