One of the first blogs I discovered, back last fall, is still my all-time favorite.
The Botany Photo of the Day is published by the Botanical Gardens at the University of British Columbia. It's a great place to see wonderful images of everyday plants, as well as exotic species I will likely not get to see in real life. The site is managed by Daniel Mosquin, and I can't recommend it more highly.
By the way, if you're really interested in plants or ever have a question about them, see the Forums on the same site. Forum members can identify almost anything, virtually instantaneously.
Botany Sidebar: The spring blizzard of 2003 (previous post) did wonders for the variety and abundance of spring wildflowers and sustained most of our vegetation well into the summer. Or so it seemed. March is usually one of our snowiest months and provides a great deal of our moisture. So far this year, though, we are on the dry side. As spring progresses, we'll include local wildflowers here.
