Get Out in the Forest

Last Sunday while I was out walking, I made a picture of this wildflower on our property, Jack-in-the-pulpit.  I always like seeing this flower because it grows different from most and it is found in moist areas of the forest. I add three other wildflowers to my blog (Dewberrylands.com) under the "Wildflower" tab.  The flowers added were Eastern Bluestar, Wood Betony (Lousewort), and Purple Wild Geranium. It is truly amazing at the number of species of wildflowers when you start documenting what is on your property.

Woodland Magazine

Below is the link to an article that will be in the next issue of Woodland magazine published by the American Forest Foundation.  When the article was written back in the fall we had five generations on the Dewberry property but back in February we lost the oldest one and we now are down to four.  There are some good articles in this magazine and you will probable want  to read the others.
Thanks, Kathy Westra, for doing a good job on the article!
