If you want to know how to identify this ambitious native, Sassafras albidum in our New England woods, just think about mittens. Simple little tricks like this can help you identify plant material.
While this morning’s chill may have you contemplating a pair of knitted covers for your paws, let’s enjoy the beautiful fall foliage dotting our landscape. Whether you are celebrating this holiday as enjoyment or work, take heed to the words of one of my favorite inspirational speakers, Leo Buscaglia. “I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.” Because as Christopher Columbus once said, “Riches don't make a man rich, they only make him busier.”
