November 20



This is a plant we have growing in the woods around us.  It's name is Lunaria, but it's often called money plant because of the coin shaped seed heads.  In the spring it has purple flowers and looks quite pretty growing in the trees, but I love to see it at this stage too.

I could use a money plant to fix my sinking pool and deck :-)

I have never seen anything like that. It almost looks like paper.

That is really neat. Reminds me of thinly cut potatoes.
