Given the near absence of winter thus far, I have continued my wildflower inventories at a few locations. And those activities have me thinking about spring and the upcoming return of blooming wildflowers throughout the next growing season.
With that in mind, I wanted to offer this sneak peak screen shot of five new wildflower field guides that will be available on this site in March. Each of these new guides will be in Microsoft PowerPoint Show format (ppsx), featuring easier navigation throughout each document and higher resolution photographs as well as additional information regarding many of the species contained in each guide. Unfortunately, each of these digital files is much larger than my previous wildflower guides; thus, downloading will take more time. Those new wildflower guides will include:
- Ashford Glen Preserve
- Bauer Environmental Park
- Old Iron Spring Fitness Trail
- Peter Desrochers Memorial Country Knolls Trails
- Zim Smith Trail
Also, please check my updated status of wildflower inventories. I will be adding one of those destinations (Anchor Diamond Park at Hawkwood) as a new page on this site sometime later this year.
In the meantime, view my winter plant ID quiz.
Lastly, a reminder to keep a watchful eye for ticks. During a winter as mild as this one has been, they remain active. Last week, I found two while visiting a local preserve!
