While he was at the hospital our son Robert took the grandbabies to visit him. Shelby is getting so big.
Yesterday Judy and I worked on the Purple Loosestrife assignment. Purple Loosestrife is a wetlands perennial that grows in a wide range of habitats. It is a very invasive plant. One mature plant can produce more than two million seeds annually. The seeds are easily dispersed by water, livestock, people and mud that is adhered to aquatic life. These plants threaten and endanger the native plants and wildlife. Our job is to check our assigned areas and note any sightings of these plants. We will have to go back and recheck our areas one to two times a week for up to three weeks.
There are a couple of plants that look very similar to this one so we have to check the areas carefully. We didn't see any Purple Loosestrife today. We did see a variety of other wildflowers and plants. Of course we took pictures.
Tomorrow is one of our days off. I think I see laundry on the agenda.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
