I had spent the last year looking for a squeaky baseball for Mr. Darcy ever since he lost his, which was his favorite toy. I couldn't find one anywhere. Even on the web. Even with other people helping me look. Then I walked into the nifty local hardware store in this 700 person town, and there it was!
I am completely charmed by this wildflower. It has the architectural feeling of mapapples on the forest floor, and I've always loved them back home.
This blog is a record of Mr. Darcy's first trip away from home during the spring and summer of 2017, which is a big trip for a rookie traveler.
