Mother Nature struck Moone Athy yesterday at 5:00 AM. There was a huge storm and a torrential 30 minute downpour, with incredible flash flooding. I have startling photos on my cell phone which, unfortunately, is malfunctioning. I am trying to resuscitate it – if successful these will be posted.

  2. The enlarged photo helps a lot, and should facilitate a winning reponse momentarily.

    Just a friendly reminder to the LC: The American Botanical Society’s Quiz rules provide for severe penalties for any leaking of insider information. Please be aware that we intend to enforce these rules diligently.

  4. Let’s have more botanical identifications. Granny Polk often said that her most important gift which she wished to leave to her descendants was THE ABILITY TO BE AMAZED AND TRANSPORTED WITH JOY IN THE IDENTIFICATION AND APPRECIATION OF PLANTS AND NATURE, TO BE ABLE, LIKE A SMALL CHILD, TO BE TOTALLY IMMERSED IN THE EXPERIENCE OF THE MOMENT, THE EXPERIENCE OF THE NATURAL WORLD, THE PLANTS, THE HILLS, THE MOON RISING OVER THE HILL, THE STREAMS, THE FOSSIL ROCKS, THE SILICA SAND, THE DUTCHMAN’S BREECHES, ALL THE BEAUTY AROUND US AT MOON ATHY.
