What Plant Did I Find on Old Falls Road?
The last time I saw an interesting plant while biking to work down Old Falls Road, all of you out there gave me a hand and helped me learn that the mysterious flowering plant I was looking at was Mullein.
Let's see if we can do this a second time! I was biking to work again this morning and noticed these lovely silver green plants on the edge of the stream. They reminded me of Artemisia because of the color but I'm not quite sure if the leaves are right for Artemisia.
Any idea what I've got here? Now I wish I had thought to smell one of the leaves and see if had a licorice-y scent, since that would have given me another clue. Maybe I'll do that on the way back home.
