Field Notes Friday 0007: Bluebonnet Bursts through Bark

I had the privilege of volunteering in the LLELA nursery for the first time on Wednesday. We did some fancy ‘weeding’ by liberating perfect little native plants like Bluebonnets, Standing cypress, and Cutleaf daisy from walkways in the pollinator garden. We relocated the seedlings to pots and hope they’ll grow strong enough for transplanting. Before potting this one, I just had to take a picture of what transfixed me: the power of roots to surge through just about any material, including bark.

Here’s what our finished products looked like (before watering).
