Giving a dicot its dew!

It was driving me crazy, so I had to look it up. I believe Debbie used the word cotyledon [on the plant walk of 12/27/2016] which is the fancy way of saying seed leaf (which she also said). Of course, dicot [di = two] and monocot are shortened forms of double and single cotyledon leaves. What started all of this today was the first cotyledon leaves of the Elegant Lupine (Lupinus concinnus) poking out of the sand below the dam. Spring is just around the corner!
