I enjoyed Look For: Paw Paws. It inspired me to try them for the first time. After harvesting some in the fall, this spring I have spotted the blooms in many places.

Thanks. Happy Birthday!

Hmmm... I'd have to say skunk cabbage flowers. I never would have seen nor smelled those odiferous flowers without The Natural Capital. Though my nose still twitches when I recall the experience.

Happy Birthday!

I read the post about Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers and then led a hike for the Sierra Club the next weekend, and, what-do-you-know!, evidence of Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers everywhere that I could point out to my hikers, explain the migration, and be knowledgeable in the woods! Excellent!

Happy Birthday! I love you!
