Are you as bad at names as I am? Don’t you wish everything, from people to birds, wore their names on their chests?
Well, guess what…
the trees on The Ringling’s grounds have the digital equivalent of those stick-on nametags!
Using a software program, you can have a lovely fall outing, strolling under the shade of a tree that you’ve just been introduced to. For example, meet Pseudobombax ellipticum.
Of course, we all know the name of our front-yard tree that shades the Bidwell-Wood House on our campus at 1260 12th Street in Pioneer Park, and why it’s such a symbol of the Historical Society. It has the same qualities as our members. (And no, we do NOT address her as Miss Piggy.)
