"Uvularia grandiflora" (Large-Flowered Bellwort or merrybells), "Uvularia sessilifolia" (Sessile-leafBellwort) and "Trientalis borealis"  (Starflower) are just a few of the Latin names for spring ephemerals*   that Carol Andrews says we can grow at home.  Don't know much about spring ephemerals?  She recommends spending more time lying down in the woods.  Carol Andrews is the president of the Wild Ones Minnesota Arrowhead Chapter.

* from the Greek eph?meros  "lasting a day."

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
