Here's another leftover fall botanical treat. These are the leaves of a plant called lizard tail, Saururus cernuus. See how the leaves grow in a zig-zag up the stem? It likes to grow in really wet places. In fact, where I took this picture is often completely under water. If you want to know where, go to Four Dogs and a Friend. It's right behind the second yellow lab. (different season!)
It was late to show you the white spikes of flowers, but here is one of the seed spikes that is left.
