In 2020 I wrote a post about the Priory Nature Preserve in Maplewood, Minnesota. Thank you to the Natural Resources Coordinator for contacting me about that post. Now I am motivated to find all the Neighborhood preserves!
Joy Park. How fitting is this park’s name! Seriously, I was having trouble finding my joy lately and here were some clues to get it back. The most creative playground I have seen in a long time, beautiful Silver Lake, and some raspberry leaves just starting to bud. Spring came very late in Minnesota this year; I was overjoyed to find those leaves starting to show themselves.
