|Diane and some Lady Slippers|
Dianne Sinclair has been stalking wildflowers in northern New England since 1988. Her PowerPoint presentation will sharpen your knowledge of local wildflowers, including some curious facts. Did you know that a Jack-in-the-Pulpit can change its sex? We will also discuss where to find these beauties. And to add a historic perspective, Dianne will share the story of Kate Furbish, a 19th century Maine botanist, who struggled against poverty and discrimination to create a lasting scientific legacy.
Her talk will begin at 1:30 pm, after a short business meeting, on Saturday June 18, 2016. It will be a highly informative presentation and I hope you will be able to attend. Also, you can purchase your garden tour tickets and quilt raffle tickets after the presentation. See you there!
