I'm trying to identify two separate growths I'm unfamiliar with, just for curiosity's sake. The first is a tight, cauliflower-like dome found on the base of a cut tree trunk. The second formed tiny red "spears" on a weed leaf. Pics within. [more inside]
These two trees
are in my friend's new Los Angeles backyard. Any idea what they are? [more inside]
Can you help me figure out what this "Chalet" brand key
is for? Googling leads only to beautiful homes in the mountains and I know it's not to one of those. [more inside]
Any help identifying this plant
? It's a shrub about 10' high and the photo shows what it looks like in October in New England. Bonus points if you can provide a reference about whether it's poisonous or not.
