Natives in Bloom/Fruit

I would really like to "bioblitz" my yard- identify as many of all species and keep a record. I'd probably start with trees (the fewest) and work my way down to herbaceous plants (being the most). I'd also like to do other things- mammals to invertebrates. I suppose blogging is close enough for now. I'm posting twice today- once on natives and another on the garden.
