Day 82: Wildflowers

Wildflowers “A walk through the woods and fields, over the mountainsides or hillsides, is vitally interesting to anyone who is equipped with enough knowledge of the different plants to identify those which he happens upon. It is like meeting old friends. Then, too, there is the added zest of finding new plants to identify. People who study wild flowers grow to love and appreciate them; they are never ruthless or destructive in their zeal for collecting. Some of our most beautiful specimens have been almost wiped out by greedy barbarians who strip whole localities before they are satisfied. It is well to remember that, while the wild flower is beautiful in its habitat, it affords only a very transient pleasure when transferred to a vase or basket.” –Jane Harvey
