We lost our Dad on Easter morning. An avid naturalist and noted mycologist, he will be sadly missed by so many who value the littlest miracles of nature.Often in the woods taking pictures of wildflowers and fungi, he would always stop and take note of the flora, while others might have walked on by. He shared his knowledge with many, and shared his love of nature with all of his children and grandchildren. It is from him that I get my passion for plants and gardening.I'm afraid however that I may have been one of the ones to walk by the fungi and tiny wildflowers. From now on I will take special note of these things.
