In Nature's infinite book of secrecy a little I can read.

Student of the natural world and amateur botanist/horticulturalist with a special interest in the native plants of Texas and adjacent northeastern Mexico.

In an effort to help the most members of our community with plant identification in the time I spend online, I usually do not explain an ID before moving on to identify the next observation. If you'd like me to explain my reasoning for a certain ID, please tag me in a comment on that observation and I'll do my best to return to that observation and explain why I chose that ID.

Many thanks to everyone who assists with identifications!
