trying to id more plants. you all were such a great help last time i thought i'd try it again!
the first 2 photos are the same plant. if i remember correctly, it had spines on the stems. the leaf pattern reminds me a bit of ginseng.
this is a bad shot. sorry. i don't even remember where it was.
i want to say this is coltsfoot but i've never seen it in person before. there are two beautiful stands of it. i asked a more experienced naturalist and he crushed me by saying 'it's probably just a weed'. his explanation was the roots were shallow and natives have deep roots. uhhh, dude, have you ever seen jewelweed? there are no rhizomes on this but i could have not dug deep enough. i brought home a plant to watch.
some sort of tree seedling?
this plant is intriguing. very soft leaves, reminds me of large flax.
another view with a goldenseal lookalike...that plant sends up stalks with white flowers. you can see it in the above picture.
porcelain berry? or just another type of grape? there is wild grape growing but it looks different. sort of hoppish looking but too large and woody stemmy (comparing to my memory from years ago). also, it just didn't look like hops to me.
