The natural way

"Bring me what you will, but leave me my wide open view of the sky, the wind on my face, sweet clean earth to dig in, the whirr of wings — and all my gift of the wild things."

We just love the words of Caroline Dormon.

She was a naturalist who founded Briarwood, a wonderful nature preserve near Saline.

The quote was the postscript on a letter from Evelyne C. Taylor, president of The Foundation for the Preservation of the Caroline Dormon Nature Preserve.

It told of a benefit that will be held there from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 14.
There will be music, a buffet and tours. The stars: Louisiana native iris, pitcher plants and massive stands of wild azaleas. Can you even imagine how beautiful they will be?
