Heather Robbins lived twenty-five years on a cattle ranch on the Canada prairies, and spent many hours outside walking through fields and pastures, hills and valleys. She found beauty and inspiration in everything that she saw. Mother Nature reached into her soul and brought her to a place of complete belonging and peace. Wildflowers composed their sweet songs, sweeping Heather away into a world of inspiration, and they gently reminded her of what was possible, motivating her to live her life with hope, strength, and grace. Each wildflower whispered their lessons, guiding her to look inside herself with love and understanding, forgiveness and gratitude. It is Heather's hope that as women journey through these pages, they will be inspired to open up their hearts to hear these divine messages, and discover the beauty and grace that exists within us all.

An Illustrated Guide to Eastern Woodland Wildflowers and Trees

350 Plants Observed at Sugarloaf Mountain, Maryland
Author: Melanie Choukas-Bradley
Publisher: University of Virginia Press
ISBN: 9780813922515
Category: Nature
Page: 415
View: 6672
A thorough yet user-friendly companion to the authors' popular paperback Sugarloaf: The Mountain's History, Geology, and Natural Lore--both books are the result of a ten-year collaboration--this volume is an exquisitely illustrated guide to 350 eastern woodland wildflowers and trees found on site at Sugarloaf Mountain, Maryland. Many of these plants also thrive across a wide region of the eastern United States and Canada, making this guide a remarkably helpful resource for both mid-Atlantic naturalists--amateur and experienced--and botanical enthusiasts across North America. Author Melanie Choukas-Bradley and illustrator Tina Thieme Brown have teamed up once again to create a practical tool for answering the age-old question frequently raised by visitors to the woods: "What is that plant over there?" At the same time, Choukas-Bradley and Brown aim to educate by presenting the plants grouped by family, so that the observer will learn to anticipate the presence of certain plants based on an understanding of their family characteristics. The text describes each plant's flower, leaf, and growth habit, gives its ideal habitat and range, describes similar species that might be confused with the plant, and gives an herbal history where applicable. And because plants are organized by family and genus, the scholarly reader can build on his or her botanical knowledge. An Illustrated Guide to Eastern Woodland Wildflowers and Trees includes a user-friendly key, an illustrated glossary of frequently used botanical terms, and is packed with nearly 400 elaborately and artistically detailed pen-and-ink drawings to make plant identification simple and fun.


a memoir of an inner city high school teacher

As a senior high school teacher, I fell in love with my students every single year. My stories will make you laugh, cry, and cringe at the reality of the lives of our wildflowers. Kids are kids, however, these kids needed me more than your average child of priviledge. Most parents love their children, however, a mother at the age of fourteen, I believe, cannot offer what a mother at the age of thirty can offer. For many, violence and poverty were their facts of life. Many came to school for food, hugs, love, and support. My priceless experiences in the 'slammer' proved to be the most rewarding of all. Each day I thought how the situations in which these kids found themselves, was more often than not, the result of faulty parenting. Growing up was not about T-ball, picnics, vacations, and college. Growing up for some wildflowers was all about survival. My career involved love, baby showers, funerals, talent shows, proms, and courtroom appearances. I believe everyone is given a gift. My gift was the uncanny ability to communicate with at-risk teenagers. I spoke their language. I understood that there were reasons, not excuses, for their problems. These wildflowers were born into this world just as sweet and innocent as every other child. Their surroundings dictated and directed their futures. For years, I went to bed worrying about them and I awoke wondering what would happen each and every day to my wildflowers. They loved me because I loved them. If reading my book helps just one teacher to help make a difference in just one wildflower's life, my promise to my father to write this book will have made it all worth while.
