These particular little plants used to make for a nice field trip object lesson.
“How many petals?” I’d ask. “Ten” they’d say. And I’d pull off one of the five tiny V shaped petals to show them you have to investigate before you answer based on what seems to be true. Then I’d stuff the specimen in my mouth, chew and swallow. (As my ol’ buddy Euell Gibbons used to say, “many parts are edible.”)
