Walkin'

A dirty mind

A man’s home is his castle, it is said, but in my case the kingdom has been downgraded to a spare bedroom for an office and the garage.
Not that I’m complaining.
Inside, I have a computer, small television, desk and shelves aplenty to hold the different books and projects collected over the years. Toss in a comfortable chair, good desk lamp, easy access to a nearby bathroom and I have everything needed short of a wet bar.

Food For Thought

Botanical conversations

A recent science program I happened to catch on television dealt with the subject of plants and how they communicate. There were several experiments depicted, and I found one of the most fascinating explored the notion that parent plants apparently nurture their offspring in a way that might be compared to the way most animals care for their young. Young trees growing in a grove of relatives appear to be given special care by their mother trees, through nutrients passed on through root connections.

Name that park, North Liberty

NORTH LIBERTY– This spring, the City of North Liberty broke ground on a new 40-acre community park on the west side of town near North Bend Elementary School. The park has an address — 1565 St. Andrews Dr. — and will be the home of North Liberty Blues & BBQ in 2014 and other community events for years to come. But it still doesn’t have a name.

Join JCHT’s Woodland Walk with Larry Weber May 11

IOWA CITY– Intact, relatively undisturbed floodplain forests are a rarity in Iowa.
Come walk through an 80-acre tract of such forests adjacent to two creeks on one side and upland wooded ridges on the other. Join the Floodplain and Woodland Wildflower Walk at Old Man’s Timber (Kansas Ave SW of Iowa City off Highway 1)on Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. until noon. The woodlands are just southwest of Iowa City.
Boots are recommended; the walk may be wet and muddy.
The walk will be easy, but may be a mile or more with a few moderate hills.
