I made some "pink lemonade" out of this staghorn sumac for the first time since I was 10. I highly recommend it.

My parents' goats today. I wish they weren't so skittish.

Some kind of Ramaria-like fungus.

Found my all-time favorite plant (Monarda fistulosa) and a ton of other mints around the lake.

I got the afternoon off at a workshop in Madison, so I went to the botanical garden and walked along Lake Manona for a few hours back to my hotel.

Shriveled prickly pear (Opuntia macrocentra)

Stopped by Guzman's on my way home from work. Here are five of the twenty or so mint species they have for sale. sp. officinalis reptans sp. citriodora

This thing is huge. Aguirre Spring is swarming with lizards today. (Crotaphytus collaris)

Here's the Stapelia gigantea opened up. You can see the smelly nectaries (I think) in the last photo. It's truly foetid...

Today or tomorrow, this wretched stapelia flower will open up and the greenhouse will smell like death. It's really pretty though. (Stapelia gigantea)

Eggplant sex parts.

I get to take care of my lab's ~200 Leucaena trees and ~100 miscellaneous teaching plants for the next year or so.  It's pretty sweet, but I wish there weren't so many goddamn ants everywhere! The first photo is Leucaena involucrata, and it's one of the 21 members of this genus that I do transcriptome analysis on.

Watermelon in the making. Either I'm not very good at growing produce, or southern New Mexico is inhospitable to gardeners. For whatever reason, fruits grow really slow in our garden.

I didn't know White Sands had cottonwoods. (Populus deltoides)

Left work at 4 today to go to White Sands. It's the first time I've gone when it wasn't swarmed with humans. I could actually see zebra stripes untainted by footprints.

A western blue flag and the canyon I found it in. (Iris missouriensis)

Parasitic orchids (Spiranthes parasitica) from Cloudcroft. As the second photo shows, they're very difficult to find. I walked through a large population without noticing for a while.
