Good Morning. Don’t you love the little sunshine daisies? They are quite rare due to habitat destruction and the fact they need to be pollinated by a plant they aren’t directly related to. They grow only in a few spots around the Great Lakes.
FDL Book Salon today is timely, Fighting for the Press, hosted by Kevin Gosztola (BevW really does use a crystal ball when she schedules these discussions). Digby and McJoan are Virtually Speaking tonight. And Monday, you and Lisa will interview Eric Minh Swenson, a documentarian chronicling the art and artists of Southern California.
