Number one- the Larch

From Horticulture Magazine October 15th, 1946

ok, I did grow up in a nature-y sort of way. I learned the names of the weeds while I was young, I understoond that through some magical process the cucumbers we grew in our back yard garden became pickles... but I think one of the first trees I learned to ID is the Larch.

And here's why...

I was the kid who pretended to go to bed on Sunday nights and then turned on my tiny tv to watch British TV on PBS all night. Quelle Nerd!
Made me SUPER popular with the other 7th graders...
