Spring Break

To celebrate Spring Break at Berkeley I went on a short hike at McLaren park and followed by a longer one at Edgewood Preserve. I saw 103 taxa including 10 species I haven't reported before. An interesting one was the pygmyweed (Crassula connata) that I found in the serpentine at Edgewood - this plant is on tons of plant lists but I've never seen it, I now see why - its incredibly tiny. I had to get down on my belly just to see it. But now that I can identify it I'm sure I'll see it everywhere. It grows on bear ground and looks almost like the moss and lichens its found with.
