Ok, here's one form me. Found this fascinating plant, Indianpipe Monotropa uniflora, growing on some land that was for sale, and we were walking it to get a feel for it. Fell in love with the property, a large part of which was due to some magnificent plant specimens (Indianpipe included) and purchased it.

Nice! That is wonderful...at least we know it is in good hands!

Aside from the privacy (no one across the street from us or behind us) and satisfying most of our other requirements, having two or three large boulders on the property influenced my decision a bit too...had I found magnificent plant specimens it would've made me want to grab it all the more.

Yes, congratulations. ...and great question, ww.

Inquiring minds want to know [if you (khcd) want to share]

Yes, sirs! The property is still in the same county

Dap, I totally understand re: those boulders! I could have been sold based on some big ole rocks, too!

Another one of the magnificent plant specimens is the biggest Vaccinium I've ever seen. It's probably > 20 ft tall and the trunk is bigger around than my thigh. It's a beastie!

Time to get busy entering photos and win the great book, Teeming with Microbes!

Last day for October entries is next Tuesday, election day. I just realized, we won't be home then and it's too late to get an absentee ballot! Why can't we vote from our computers no matter where we might be???

Good to hear...any chance it adjoins your current property?

I am thrilled to have the boulders, despite the fact that they are few and far between. I'm hoping to highlight them in some fashion or other. . Jeff gave me the idea to dig down to expose one of them more. Great idea...now it is exposed about another foot or two. I call it "my pride and joy".

Your Vaccinium sounds wonderful! I bet the fall color is great! The property must be amazing with such a mature specimen. Congratulations again! (For the property...but also the flora you are finding on it.)
