Brought to You by the Letter M

I was on the tv last week for the first time ever, talking monarch butterflies. You can see my grey hair below.


A lot is going on in my world: gave a talk on butterfly gardening this past weekend, giving one on native wildflowers next. Then it's the Nebraska Book Festival and more events -- including a slew of grading coming up for the English classes I teach. Busy, good work. In the background of all this noise I'm planning a research trip, working on two books, and assuming I have to do some garden cutting down if it ever warms up. A hard life. :) Here's to the thousands of snow geese I've seen passing over my house the last week -- to journeys that begin deep within us and we feel compelled to carry out no matter the physical cost.

Nice job. Don't worry about the grey hair; just helps out the English professor persona....

Good segment and marvelous points, El Professor! Even better that the host helped articulate what you said, as opposed to counteract it. Gray hair = wisdom...

Ha, you two! I swear my grey has doubled in the last year. I'm not even 40!

So many fabulous things you are stirring up out there! I have been absent for a little while, so it is so good to see that you are able to share your knowledge and passion for the plants! Well done. :)

Very grateful for sharing this information. I love Monarch butterflies simply because these butterflies are the most colorful and most beautiful of all butterflies.
