In the spring I previewed and then bought the newly published Wildflowers of Texas field guide which has turned out to be the book I’ve always wanted but had been missing from my field guide collection. I knew after I read the book that I wanted to talk to the author, Michael Eason. Luckily, it worked out that Michael was available to talk about researching and writing this book, botany, and searching for rare and unusual plants in Texas. Even if you aren’t in Texas you will find the conversation enlightening and will hopefully take away a desire to know more about the wildflowers in your region.
