Plant Bingo

By far one of the coolest assignments! I really appreciate being able to take new vocabulary and seeing it refkected in the world around me- and being able to see it all reflected just in my front yard . (Guest curator Freya in the second photo)

  1. Thanks Mary Kate,
    Guest curator Freya is observing it all with a critical eye for detail! Thanks for sharing!
    I think you did a great job with these. The only one I am not sure of and that is the one Freya is also looking at is the porate anther dehiscence. As I mentioned this feature is commonly found in the Ericaceae, but I actually forgot to mention in other comments on the Bingo card, it is also found in the Solanaceae, the Nightshade family! So you can check on your potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) if they are flowering, but also your tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) and see if you can see the pores at the tips of the anthers. Here is an image showing the terminal pores in tomato from Wikipedia.
