Bobby and I were recommended a fabulous new book Searching for Minnesota's Native Wildflowers. A Guide for Beginners, Botanists, and Everyone in Between

We met author Phyllis Root and photographer Kelly Povo at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden which is one of the spots that they recommend you explore if you want to find Minnesota's gems. The two gals spent ten years exploring Minnesota's woods, prairies, hillsides,lakes, and bogs taking pictures and notes, gathering clues, mapping the way for fellow flower hunters.

They shared with us their journey and their some of their favorite spots. Just a gorgeous book filled with helpful tips, exquisite photographs, this really was labor of love for these two talented woman.
