If I showed you a picture of Anniston Army Depot, they would have to kill me so this is Little River Falls, our next stop

We spent most of the day at Anniston Army Depot still collecting seed. We got seed from Short-leafed Pine, Pinus echinata, a plant I like a lot for the Washington, DC area; there are two in the National Grove of State Trees (they are the state tree of Arkansas) and they have been beautiful for the last four years. This is a timber tree in the south but seems like it would be a good landscape specimen in the warmer parts of Zone 7.

We also collected an unknown Holly, that we tentatively believe to be Ilex longipes. It is a beautiufl deciduous plant with large, shiny, longstemmed, red berries. Beautiful.
