quite small. I'm not a mushroom person. Someone with us said False Morel. Hope we can tell from this photo. Photo taken not in the woods but by a parking lot at the Nature Center.
I think this is tan-striped morph. Zoomed in I can yellow above the lores. I think I have the right ID.
Or Rufous-sided Towhee?
Found growing along a gravel road
After a brief overnight snow at the end of March. I didn't catch this the day before when it was sunny and milder and didn't get back in time to see the bloom open but I THINK this is bloodroot. I'd appreciate if anyone had a comment.
On a hilly location during a cold, snow-flurry day in Wayne National Forest - I've added a closer view.
I think I finally have an ID for this but please help if I am incorrect. Low growing, spreading Ground Cedar in the Wayne National Forest outside of New Straitsville, OH. It seems very robust in this area but some sites say it is becoming more rare due to deforestation.
Second, better picture of cutleaved toothwort. Apparently this was formerly known as dentaria laciniata (my first ID)
The blooms had not opened yet but the time of the year and the leaves suggest cut-leaved toothwort. Is there enough evidence for a positive ID?
Photographed at Long Branch Farm outside of Goshen Ohio. Teasel prefers rocky, dry soil.
Butterfly weed and ox-eye daisy on a hot afternoon in my favorite field. The butterfly weed was very prominent along the roadside this year.
At the Cincinnati Nature Center. I think I have ID this - please give me your thoughts
found in full sun in an open field
Thought this was stinging nettle at the Cincinnati Nature Center but Charlie has graciously provided the correct ID - thanks!
Fruit of the Horse Nettle
I now believe this is Umbrella Magnolia - I am correcting my own ID
Growing at the base of a small oak stump tree. The area had been logged 15-years ago. It is appearing in other areas closeby too. Temp upper 50's.
Please help ID this - I don't know if this is a knapweed (or maybe the Canada thistle. Thanks! Spotted alongside a gravel road in the full sun at the Cincinnati Nature Center.
Seen at Long Branch Farm. The tree was about 20 feet high and stood in the middle of a field.
Asiatic dayflower in the shade of the woods.
Smooth Solomon's Seal, I think. Could someone comment - thanks!
