My brother lives in Indiana, and when we get together we are both quite busy with botany lessons for each other. Thus, I am so pleasantly reminded of the field lessons when he taught me about the sycamore as we walked through one of his area woodlands. Thank you for this, Sally!!!!!!!!!

We giggle as we talk the talk - binomial nomenclature is our second language which we delight in speaking when we are together. Clamoring through the underbrush in search of elusive fungi is another sport. What fun when we find an unknown and have to use our dichotomous keys!!!! The love and interest in the natural world was a gift given us by our parents!!

Sounds like a great relationship! The closest I can relate is a few years ago finally going to a botanical garden with another plant fanatic friend, and going to DG Swaps, where you can talk about 'toad lilies' or 'Heuchera', and not stop the conversational flow.
Great gift from your parents, in my opinion.
