Forgot to mention, my daffodils and hyacinths are coming up. First saw them on the 21st. Hopefully we won't get a big nasty cold snap that melts the poor little flower buds!
We wandered around campus looking at various gymnosperms for lab today. There is a female ginkgo tree on Taylor, and the ground was totally covered with mushy, slippery, vomit-scented seeds (not fruits! seeds!). I was tempted to pick one up and take it home, see if it would germinate, but I didn't really want to a) handle a vomity seed, and b) reveal to my classmates that I carry empty baggies in my bag for just such a purpose. Bio Geek!! :P
