These are the interesting new flowers of a native male <b>Veatch Silk-Tassel</b> (<i>Garrya veatchii</i>) shrub in the <b>Silk-Tassel</b> (<i>Garryaceae</i>) plant family. The strange flowers hang like pearls on a thread! (San Marcos Pass, 10 January 2010)
This native shrub is "dioecious" with separate male and female plants. The flowers of this particular shrub will only produce pollen.
My photo-friend Lynn Watson has a nice page about this native plant at:

MYKOLOGOS is a group site for photos of mushrooms, fungi, molds, lichens, slime molds, bacterial mats, algae - all those non-flowering plants that don`t follow the usual rules. I figure ferns are marginal unless they show their sporangia.
PYRO is a community group for photos of fire and burning and campfires and homebrew pyrotechnics. There`s another group for your fireworks photos. Be safe, stay legal, have fun, and share your hot photos!
