We had a nice contingent of folks, both BotSoccers and others and great weather for a very rewarding afternoon of vanquishing evil weeds using our hands and all manner of implements of destruction.  We made headway (can't really say cleared as this was just another step in the process) on removing privet and Japanese honeysuckle from a floodplain area along South River that will be replanted with natives and then turned our attention to knocking back chickweed, ground ivy, and more privet from around the young leaves of the yellow fumewort (Corydalis flavula) in a nearby an area.   Jim Allison was there to make sure we stayed focused and targeted the correct plants. 

We may have more opportunities for similar productive work in the future, so I hope to see you on the battlefield then.

For folks who may not be able to attend the BotSoc walk on February 20, Beth Grant provides the following informaiton:

As of February 15, the trout lilies are just starting to bloom!  After a week of mostly sunshine, the bloom should be in full swing by this weekend.  With current weather forecasts, our schedule looks good-to-go for the next week.  I'll let you know if there are any changes.

I've upgraded the forum software, and I believe the problems have been fixed. Please test it out, though, and email me ASAP if you're still having problems.

Hi, all, I'm sorry about the problems many of you have had posting to the forum lately. I'm working on updating the software to the latest version. That will take me another day or two. Once that's done, if you're still having problems, I'm going to transfer the forum to another kind of software.

Please bear with me as I do this. The forum may be down for a while now and then over the next week or so.

Thanks to all who've kept posting through the problems.

I'm pretty sure the plant pictured is Leucothoe racemosa (Coastal fetterbush or sweetbells). Do a Google search for Images and type the scientific name or either click on, or copy and paste the link below, which should carry you there and see if you don't agree.

Best regards,

My girlfriend and I were paddling in the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge, Steven Foster side) when I spotted this beauty on the canoe trail.  It was late spring, I believe in April of last year, when this picture was taken.  I have searched high and low and cannot seem to find a reference to it.  Please help.  I cannot even be elevated to the "Duffer" realm of botany so I need the experts to enlighten me. 

Okay, if I did something wrong and the picture doesn't show up, I will be hiding out with Waldo so you can't find me.

Thanks  Phil
