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

Student of the natural world with a special interest in the native plants of Texas and adjacent Northeastern Mexico. I have no formal training, just many hours studying field books and the internet, many hours walking in the field, many hours spent growing many of these same plants.

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.

"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise."

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
