A good omen visited my cottage at Shawnee this morning, one of the giant silk moths, a Polyphemus arrived just in time to kick off tomorrow's Flora-Quest.
The flora has been refreshed by the recent rain showers, and the forest fire is old news. Guides are arriving from all over the state and beyond, Jaret Daniels comes the farthest, and has flown in from Florida. Jaret will be leading a butterfly workshop on Saturday and black lighting for moths on Saturday night. I'll be crossing my fingers for a few more of these jewels of the night for our guest's enjoyment. Flora, feathers, and night time fliers- we will be having tons to view in the next three days. I'll look forward to seeing so many friends gathered here!
