Gimme a T

Another beauty in the Sunflower Family (Asteraceae), Turpentine Bush (Ericameria laricifolia) blooms in the fall. The leaves on this plant are a vibrant green year round and smell of - you guessed it - turpentine when crushed. Take a whiff today.
Another T is the answer to yesterday's quiz: Termites. They 'process' (poop out) the plant material as they go munching along. Talk to two termite tubes today!
