Mostly Mariposas (203-225)

Mon, Feb 19, 7:00pm--9:00pm

Presented by Ron Parsons, noted flower photographer, lecturer, horticulturist and author. Ron has been photographing wildflowers for 20 years. He will be discussing some of the amazing wildflowers he saw in 2006 with his usual focus on Calochortus, the genus that includes some of California’s most beautiful natives. He traveled through northern California and southern Oregon on many trips with his co-author, Mary E. Gerritsen, to see as many species of Mariposa Lilies, Globe Lanterns, Cat’s Ears and Star Tulips as possible. They also traveled to Jalisco, Mexico in August of last year to see some of the species of Calochortus there. Ron also traveled to Minnesota, Manitoba, Florida, Georgia and New York in 2006, to see and photograph wildflowers, and will show some highlights of those trips. Mary and Ron are the authors of the current Timber Press title, “Masdevallias – Gems of the Orchid world” and have a second book in press, “Calochortus – Mariposa Lilies and their Relatives” which will be released in June of 2007
