Field Notes
Our quadrat was set up in Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth. We were happy to be outside without the predicted thunderstorm. Clouds, people, and cars were visually observed. It felt very humid and hot with the sun beating down on our quadrat. We heard people, cars, and birds in our area. The slight scent of flowers was evident. Our biggest surprise was the number of species that co-existed with an invasive in our quadrat. We surmised this occurred due to the edge of our quadrat being so close to the walkway.

Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
I think that we did not find Rosa blanda because the rose that we did find had thorns.

The stems of new growth are green and not the reddish color associated with the Rosa blanda.

Flowers have a bright pink color and not the pale pink or white of the Rosa blanda.
