Re: OT-Chat: L. canadense

and I add that it was too cold to go out and weed at 8:30 this morning.
Not really - the temps hovered around 55 F reaching a high of 60 on a 
sunny, clear, glorious mountain day. NO RAIN for a change but our one 
day reprieve ends tomorrow with rain and thunderstorms expected all 

We decided to forego gardening for a day and went north toward Canada 
for lunch and we were driving thru the *wilderness* and I screamed 
(literally) "stop the car". I jumped out of the car and jogged through a 
large clearing near a swollen, raging river (the Androscoggin) and 
almost fell to my knees as I gazed upon my first L. canadense growing in 
the wild. !! It was thought to be only found in Northern Maine and 
Canada. Happy to report that I found 7 specimens in Cambridge, New 
Hampshire (ok, so it is almost in Quebec - don't quibble). One in full 
bloom and two in green bud and the others immature. I would estimate 
that they were growing on a slope in a sunny clearing of an 1/16 of an 
acre. NO camera in the car....will return to get pix next 
week-end...have marked the site and will anxiously watch for seed-pods 
later this summer which I will donate to the NALS and specifically the 
Species Lily group. So exciting...as an afterthought, there were several 
I. versicolor growing near the river but they are commonplace here. 

	L. canadense = Canada lily 

Feeling good,
