2013-01-13 Plant Rescue

On Sunday Nick, Rick, and I went on a plant rescue trip.  Project Idlewild is a non-profit that helps rescue native plants before the bulldozers come in for new development.

Sunday we were in a tranquil pine forest where I kept drifting off the task at hand to drink in the peace.  We dug out lots of Christmas ferns and had to lug them up quite a grade to the road.  Despite the hard work, it was a wonderful day to be out in the forest and I'm looking forward to going back.

Nick and Rick at the bottom of the grade.

Hauling in quite a catch.
My bundles.

Some spent puffballs on a stump.

what a super project saving native plants, thanks for that.

It's nice to save them, and since they're native species they take very little maintenance. A win-win.
