With the rain we have gotten

5/25/07 – With the rain we have gotten over the last few days the spring blossoms have decided to show themselves. Yesterday I took a walk around Sawbill with Mary Alice Hansen to try to soak up some of her knowledge of the flowers and plants around here. Mary Alice started Sawbill with her husband Frank in 1957 so there was quite a bit of soaking to do on my part. In addition to the specimens pictured below we also identified Marsh Marigolds (also known as Cowslip), Pin Cherries and Clintonia. – Caitlin
