Emerged from a bit of dead alder tree branch that I had in a plastic bag in my house. The non-native alder grows in my backyard and the dead branch had fallen off the tree.

BG gathering
Hi Margarethe!

Yes -- I'm trying to make a decision in the next few days about going. Thanks for your work organizing it! It sounds as if it will be a lot of fun.

Funny, the day you sent this I was on a trip in southern CA (Sequoia National Forest) and ran into Robyn Waayers. We talked about the Arizona gathering.
