And you're right about Spanish moss having such an eerie, amazing look. Here's another pic I took:
oooh, pretty. :yes: Just a little effort to remove the post, a bit of the other things and this would be perfection. Seriously, award winning. :yes:

Don't know if RJ will remember this, but a few years ago I kept finding albino bugs and plants. Well, I found another white Chicory, which are supposed to be blue. This time, I got a picture.

How they should look:

How they look white:

I grabbed some seeds from the white plant for next year.

^^ That's so cool. I didn't realize plants could be albino. So much I don't know....

I think I remember that. Now that you have some seeds, maybe you can actually breed those Chicories. I wonder if albino Chicory seeds will actually grow more albino plants, or if it's more complicated than that.

I hope the biggest wall in the history of walls doesn't disrupt their migration pattern.

Thanks. I didn't either, until I found them, an albino bug and a white squirrel.

I hunted that white squirrel (mentioned above) for ages. All gone, now.
Yeah, I don't know if they will produce white flowers, but I'm going to find out. I've seen seeds, from white ones, for sale on the web and wondered if they would flower white or revert to blue.

Not if we all keep helping them. We'll get 'em over the wall! :yes:

That's a pretty picture, Lupine. :)

And now, Dead man's finger, in large size:

It was too cold to take a lot of pictures today, but here's a nice shot of the Charles River from Harvard Square:

It was bitterly cold at that moment, but it's a very scenic location. Right down the street is the main square, which was one of my main hangouts as a teenager and young adult-- although it has changed a lot in the last few years.

^^ How has it changed?

That photo does nicely capture a nice crisp Fall day.
