Walking with my BFF several times recently, not only was the conversation fun but it was interesting. Out of her mouth came, "Hey are you familiar with an app that helps identify plants? My brother uses it. You should give it a try. I mean you're a Ranger and need to know these things, right?" (I adore her for her very sharp wit along with her intelligence and contemplativeness....a real thinker.)
SO...I downloaded the app called Picture This. Then for kicks and grins, while I was walking back up our no longer gravel road, I snapped a photo of a tree. Quicker than I could imagine up popped a screen identifying the tree as a Juniper describing in detail it's pertinent information. Since I was still in "test mode" as I wandered around our place, I snapped another pic of a fern. Sure enough, Ostrich Fern...then Cinnamon Fern...and last but not least, an all-time favorite, the Interrupted Fern.
You're probably wondering if I've taken it out on any excursions. The answer is "No, not yet", although tomorrow is a good possibility as the BFF and I are hiking again.
seeing, saying, and sharing...
with you and those at
