Nothing like an afternoon walking through the gardens at Winterthur Museum and finding out how little you know about plants.

For example--who knew an Osage Orange tree actually had orange looking bark?osage orange tree

And take ferns--what is the weird growth at the end of this fern? I have similar ferns in my yard, but none have these nut-like growths. fern

Another thing, I noticed these striking yellow-orange flowers popping up all over the forest floor. Are they Turk's Cap lilies? Sort of look like pictures online.

And most importantly, why were all the chipmunks out today? They rarely venture into sight, but they were pretty bold today. Was it a chipmunk holiday? Please don't tell me they were Alvin's family!!! That would really be annoying. At least they didn't sing.

Those are wonderful looking pictures, Carolyn.  I especially love the lush green of the ferns.
