Carol Andrews waxes enthusiastic about the Michigan Lily, which is indeed native to our area, despite its name, and says it's a great addition to a rain garden.

Plus Juneberries are ready to help boost your brain power.  Carol says all you have to do is look up.

  Sitting in for Carol Andrews this week is John Pastor, who talks about juneberries, their variety, and their flowering and fruit ripening habits.

John Pastor is a UMD Professor of Biology and author of What Should a Clever Moose Eat?: Natural History, Ecology, and the North Woods, to be published in February 2016 by Island Press.
