Headed down to the Lower Rio Grande Valley for a staff meeting with the other urban wildlife biologists.
Palo Alto Battlefield was my next stop -- although, I got here too late... They closed the front gates after 30 minutes. Oh well -- I spotted some neat things while I was there. :)
Borrichia frutescens - growing along an open salt pan area along the nature trail at Long Key State Park.
This is one of the plants on an old oil pad where I test water. I'm trying to learn the plants I see at this site.
Borrichia is a genus of flowering plants in the aster family, Asteraceae. It is named for Danish physician Ole Borch (1628-1690). Members of the genus are commonly known as seaside tansies. They are native to the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
