Geek of the Week: Pl@ntNet

As planting season gets underway, here's a flower identifying app that some are calling Shazam for plants! Take a picture of the plant, answer a question or two about the plant (ie region, leaf shape) and Pl@ntNet searches its database to identify the plant or flower you're admiring in the woods or in your neighbor's garden!

The app was developed in France and has an extensive index of European plantlife, but its spreading --like wild flowers-- to North America!

Download it for free on iTunes and Google Play.
