    It is fun, but exhausting at the same time. We're hoping to get back in the field soon while we're still hot on the trail of new D. intermedia.

    More Jospeph Pines photos, plus 2 from Surry county before my battery died.

    A locality of S. flavas with very long tendrils.

    We were able to distinguish some major difference between native sumac and the invasive Ailanthus. Some of the major ones is that sumac has serrated leaves, produces latex, has no hair on the leaves, grows in an even manner, has closely spaced leaf veins, and is much smaller. Ailanthus has smooth leaf edges, smells bad when crushed, has hairy leaves, radiated growth, distantly spaced leaf veins, and has a taller stature.

    Here's sumac up close.

    Richard was practicing identifying sumac in the Big Bog. This is the exact moment when he realized he just touched poison sumac. Of course, I was standing in a batch of it as well. We were able to wash it off before it set in.

    The flavas at Joseph Pines are indeed stunning. They're much more impressive in person. I'm 5'6" and some of the lids come up to my waist.I'll have to take a photo of me standing next to one of our flava rugeliis in our pots. It's huge! I can easily fit my fist in the pitcher mouth.

    I hope you can make it down too. I'm usually here on the weekdays, but I occasionally come in on weekends.

    now those are some tall flavas! When I was in Wilmington when I was, oh, probably about 8 they were taller than me!
