A Squirrel Ate My Paper

Did you hear about the one where the mischievous squirrel stole Matti’s notes?

Stumped Squirrel

Ahhhh, yeah…  I wrote down all the names of these cool plants on a sheet of paper like a good student…  and ahhhhh….this little vermin at the SF Botanical Gardens came right up to me and took it.  Yeah, that’s it!

NOID #1

Seriously…I forgot to write down the names, but think it would be fun to see who can name these mystery plants and tree.  NOID #1 (above) was about hip height and shrubby.  The flower stalks came in a variety of colors…more or less what you see above.

NOID #2

NOID #2

NOID #2, was blooming a wine red, 10 petal flower (or 5 with 5 bracts), and you can see the bud just below the open flower.  That big leaf in the lower left belonged to another plant.  I think it was more vine-like than shrubby.

NOID #3

NOID #3

Here’s the tough one for double the points.  Tall tree, about 30-40 feet tall.  Long weeping branches.  The leaves were not really needle like, as they were long and scaly.  Send a comment on what you think.
