55 plants in 4 days

I may have got a little carried away this weekend. I managed to identify 55 plant species in 4 days and post them to Calflora. Actually, a lot were duplicates, just posting that the same plant was in multiple locations. So it was probably only 40 plant species.

What was impressive is how often I was wrong. Luckily I used the what grows here application from Calflora to check the most likely ID on a bunch of plants. That application lets you see a list of every reported plant within any map you choose. Often I found that what I thought was one plant, was actually some very slightly different plant.

I have had worse hobbies, at least this one involves exploring the area and getting a moderate amount of exercise.
