wildflowers: the irish edition.

June 7, 2010

even when i’m far from home, i can’t resist the pull of a good field of wildflowers. just like back in rhode island, the fields across from where we’re staying are filled with clover and buttercups and whispery grasses. luckily my classmates indulge my urges. they helped me pick enough to make this welcome sign for the rest of our crew. and they allowed me to decorate our dinner table with a few small bouquets. there’s no reason a research team can’t have a little fun, too. right?
