From time to time, wildflower chasers Phyllis Root and Kelly Povo check in to let us know where flowers are blooming in Minnesota. They recently sent us an audio postcard from the Cannon River Trout Lily Scientific and Natural Area, a stretch of protected woods and riverfront in Rice County.

Root and Povo are the authors of “Searching for Minnesota’s Native Wildflowers."
