I was trained as a geologist and spent my career as a researcher with the USDA Forest Service studying how geologic materials and water influence the development of soil and the performance and distribution of plants.

For many years, investigations of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) growth and health paid the bills. More recently, fragrant cliff fern (Dryopteris fragrans) has been an insightful tutor into the processes by which bedrock affects soil and water quality. Currently, thinking about influences on the distribution of willow species (Salix) is keeping my mind active.

I chose my user name to express enthusiasm, not to claim expertise. Thank you to everyone who added identifications to my observations and especially to those who have engaged in discussions. I appreciate and have learned a lot from this community!
