July 15: An acrostic ode to our beloved model species

Another long morning of phenology

Nobody knew the protocol, apparently

Gretel sunk our visors one by one

Until 12:30 we toiled in the sun

So much end of flowering to observe

The plants have been thriving at Staffanson Preserve

Into boots our feet slid after lunchtime fun

For Hegg Lake had much more work to be done

On the hills we tagged moreĀ angustifolia flowers

Lots of us also helped Taylor and Amy for hours

If only we understood those rogue Echinacea plants…

Another cruel joke by Team Pallida, perchance??

Measuring baby hybrids for Taylor's experiment!
