Welcome to my Ohio plants webpage!

Hello, my name is Kristen and I am a fourth year Animal Sciences major at The Ohio State University. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and have a love for being outdoors and in nature. However, it has always been a dream of mine to live near the ocean and study marine biology, specifically sharks as they are my favorite animal. When it comes to plants, I really enjoy gardening around my houseĀ  and planting flowers in my flower beds each year. I enjoy brightly colored flowers that are pleasing to the eye. Some of my favorite Ohio plants are Wild Geranium, Columbine, Coneflowers and many more. What I hope to gain from taking this course is a better basic knowledge and understanding of plants and get to know some of Ohio’s native species.

You will notice my “Coat of Arms” picture for the link to this website. I wanted to explain a bit about what mine symbolizes. The top left picture is a little drawing showcasing one of my favorite types of Ohio days where the sun is shining, the air is warm with some light clouds in the sky and lots of pretty flowers growing from the ground (Be easy on me, I am no artist lol). The motto to the right is just something I try to keep in mind as times get tough, maybe it will help you too. The bottom two pictures I have already mentioned about myself, but again my hometown is Columbus, Ohio – GO BUCKS – and my major is in Animal Sciences with a minor in Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology. That’s about it for me, and I hope you enjoy my page and learn something!
