Flat Stanley’s visit to Garden in the Woods

One beautiful September Saturday, Flat Stanley, my daughter, and I went to a place called Garden in the Woods.

Garden in the Woods is a woodland botanic garden owned by the New England Wild Flower Society that cultivates, or grows, plants native to New England.

Some of the plants at the Garden in the Woods are common, but some of them are rare. The reason why some native plants are rare, or not growing much anymore, is because some might grow in only one, small, area of the world, while others might have been over harvested, or picked too much, because of their beauty or medicinal value.
