Some also see food, coffee, and rubber... This plant can help sustain and support an entire community. It's definitely not a weed.

Beautiful photo and beautiful quote! Lovey dubby

Smiling Not sure who to summon so, @Dave @Jon @Trish. Just wondering ... with the "Today's Inspiration" feature; would it be possible to provide a link to the plant in the database? I'm not sure where it could go but many times I see plants featured that I'm not familiar with and would really love to be able to learn more about them.

Lin, there's not a good way to embed a link to the database in the photo itself.

Thanks Trish ... *Blush* I'm slow sometimes, or maybe it's age. Green Grin! I just realized I can always post in the comment section to find out what the plant is and then go to the database to learn more about it!

I love this inspiration! Lovey dubby

It is a reminder of wishes made over these in childhood and a gentle reminder to wish and dream even with grey hair. Thank you!

No problem, Lin!
This one is obvious, but often you may not even be able to get your answer. Jon's super busy these days (college classes and Dave's got him working on a big NGA project), so I've been playing with the inspiration photos a bit. I often take the photos from obscure places-like the photo contest, or our own photos from an arboretum- in which case the actual plant may never be known.
