This grass (?) is about 3 inches tall, growing just uphill of a creek. It’s darker green and has red/burgundy leaf sheaths, which make it easily differentiated from inland sea oats which grows nearby. I recognize inland sea oats, especially when it has the remains of fruits left after winter, but I don’t recognize this one.

Who knew bacon grows on trees?! Seriously, it’s the trunk of a tree sapling less than half an inch in diameter. Growing on the shoulder of a narrow road they woodlands.

I don’t know how to tell cedar elm from winged elm except when they’re flowering (cedar elm in fall, winged elm in spring). Any suggestions?

I’m guessing a wasp of some kind built these tubes on the wall of a metal culvert pipe directing water from a stream under a bridge. The tubes are each about a centimeter wise, outside diameter. They were placed on the upper curve of the culvert, about 6 feet above the ground.
