Getting Ready for the Party

The trillium were not yet open on Tuesday, when I found the wildflowers posted for that day, but Ed and Connie Arnfield will be on hand at Dog Ears Books tomorrow from 4 to 6 p.m., signing copies of their book (see right) featuring northern Michigan flora, and you can question the experts about what you’ve been finding. Yesterday my wildflower hunt in the woods was cut short when Sarah became very interested in a little face in a tree hollow. I was just glad the skunk was wedged in there with its face, rather than the business end, pointing out. No picture of the appealing little face in the hole—my focus was all on getting Sarah out of the woods as quickly as possible.
