Field Notes
I am happy because the plants looked interesting. The questions and problems we ran into were the plants were hard to find and are the berries poisonous? I see the plant life and I hear the birds chirping, I also smell the damp wood. I am suprised about what we found because I did not know that there were berries there until then.
