Wild flower class is a bit of a bust at this time
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
So far there are no wild flowers yet in Maine. We have had 2 classes and next week will be postponed. We are all looking for signs of Spring then our course will resume again and go on longer in to the summer.
We went to a greenhouse and looked at flowers many are cultivars of the wild ones so we used our magnifiers and our books to come up with the variety of flower we have in the pot.
As we walked through the greenhouses they were weeding the pots. We noticed these tiny weeds and the employees let us pick some they were very tiny bitter Cress Flowers and so we all managed to come up with the same flower.
I am liking this course it makes me have to think. it is supposed to keep your mind sharp if you have to think so perhaps I will have some catching up to do.
Tomorrow I have just been invited to a Movie and another long walk. It does make it easier when people keep asking you to walk. I just drop everything and go.
Tonight I have some knee pain, I am getting a little concerned about his now. I fell on ice on the rail trail but I was sure nothing was damaged now I will try to have it evaluated it has been several weeks now and some parts are numb. I will call for an appointment. If it is still painful I will settle for the movies.
Thanks my friends I am off to bed. Pat in Maine.
