Snow has fallen and fallen again. Winter has arrived, and we’re thinking about what we’re grateful for in the past year. Some of what we appreciate:
Searching for native wildflowers and sometimes even finding them
People who help protect native wildflowers and the places they grow
People who share their knowledge with us (you might not even know who you are, but thank you)
Being able to share our (non-botanist) knowledge with others
Talking about our wildflower adventures on Minnesota Public Radio
Seeing narrow-leaved milkweed for the first time
Discovering dragon’s mouth orchids all around the edge of Long Lake
Finding yellow gentianin a city park close to home
Being surprised by white turtlehead
Delighting in lots and lots and lots of whorled milkweed
Driving Wisconsin rustic roads and finding robin’s plantain
Scaling a goat prairie and finding cylindrical blazing star
Almost seeing ball cactus in bloom
Taking a class in Churchill (okay, that was last year, but we’re still grateful)
The chance to do it all again next year, as soon as the flowers start blooming!
