Took a zero today and visited my med school alma mater, the University of Virginia.
The Rotunda had been under renovation for 3 years and just opened to the public today…hmmm
Just below the dome
And a few nature shots from yesterday
Twin towers (tulip poplars)
Wild iris seed pods
Porcupines chew wood – hence the barbed wire
? 4 leaved poison ivy?
Is that a pine cone or a pineapple?
Milkweed seed pod
And finally some graffiti that seemed remarkably relevant to my adventure
“Go everywhere, study everything, fear nothing”,
Both pine trees and pineapples grow here in zone 10, but I’ve never seen a pine cone that looked like a pineapple. That’s interesting. Thanks for sharing, Kevin.
Sure, Marti. As I wrap this trip up, I’m planning my east coast relative tour, so I hope to see you and Bill in 2017. Thanks for your support and comments.
