I am happy because the sun is shining, the air is clear, and my friends and I are observing nature. I smell the leaves and my Chapstick, and the shaking Pines, I hear the wind, the crackling of the leaves, and my team member screaming (He saw a spider). I See the same screaming team member running, and the beautiful sunshine glinting off the damp grass. I see the forest and my friends laughing and the elegant colors of the fall trees. I am surprised because I saw more foliage than I expected. I also was surprised because the plant we thought to be the Oriental/Asian bittersweet, wasn’t. We had to do a lot of investigating and narrowed the differences down and then decided that the plant we were looking at wasn’t the bittersweet. We had no problems besides the spider scaring my friend.
Evidence one shows that the leaves are glossy on the top, but a bit prickly on the bottom. Their color is green, and you can also see that the leaves are oval and the edges are toothed.
The plant is wrapped around a dead branch, like the bittersweet, but doesn’t scale up any trees like the bittersweet.
