Another Berry Go Round!

August’s Berry Go Round is now up at Seeds Aside.  I love Seeds Aside. Botanical content and pun-filled writing – two of my favorite things!  Some of the great posts in this particular carnival are this one on botanizing in the Bighorn Mountains and another on an adorable little Sedum.

Kitty Todd Nature Preserve

If you’re driving from Michigan to Pittsburgh, you’ll probably go through Ohio.  At least, that’s how the car-full of ecologists I was with did it.  Some people might advise you to find some (any) way around it.

Want to submit to next month’s […]
