Barney knew the woods as a book and he taught their lore and craft to Valancy. Valancy learned the different fairy-likenesses of the mosses–the charm and exquisiteness of woodland blossoms. She learned to know every bird at sight and mimic its call–though never as perfectly as Barney. -L. M. Montgomery
It was a lovely walk. I focused on the abundant springtime wildflowers, eagerly scanning every hollow, ravine, and tucked away spot on the forest trail. His gaze was upward, his ear listening intently to the trilling of the birds. As a result, we both came away richer in the sharing of each other’s hunt.
I would highly recommend some local authors if you’re a novice who’s interested in identifying wildflowers in western Michigan. The book is called “Spring Wildflower Scavenger Hunt” by Barb Beck and Judy Bergman. By choosing a local book, the information and tips are very relevant.
