Hi all, Maria at K-town.
It was raining this morning as we bade goodbye to Lydia. All the best to Lydia as she prepares to go to Ireland for study abroad! Here's a great picture to remember the fun times in the prairie :D
Karen arrived at the town hall yesterday evening! This morning, she braved the rain and went out to many prairie remnants to look for Helianthus. She reports that Riley, Staffanson and Hegg Lake seem to hold the best promise for her pollen limitation experiments with H. maximiliani and H. pauciflorus, and maybe another H. species, if she can find it.
Andrew arrived back from his weekend trip announcing that he had all the food that's bad for you all in one day. He, Shona, and Jill went to watch Alladin, the play by the Prairie Fire Children's Theatre that Per and Hattie were in. They enjoyed it very much!
The skies gradually cleared up though temps were still in 60s-70s. It was quite chilly in the town hall.
With the squash, zucchini, and cucumber explosion :D :D :D, Shona made zucchini bread. We also welcomed Kelly's return from Northbrook about an hour ago.
