                           Our internet connection is reestablished as of today, the 29th of August. All late flower reports from now on are just my procrastanation problems or possibley just forgetfulness. (I forgot last Sunday's wild flower walk. Sigh! Remembered in the middle of the night.)
                           The fall explosion of Asters and Goldenrods has started and the annual discussions about how to tell them all apart have also started again.

		Ron passed away on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012. Because he kept records of
early and peak blooming times for nearly 30 years and then passed along his summaries
to me for this site, I plan on leaving his last summary here. Below is a small sample of
what the whole summary looks like:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
