Mary Rea | Swimsuit search rarely successful

Susan Sampson | Seeds to save the Coulee

It takes 30,000 jasmine flowers to make an ounce of “Joy” perfume. It takes 4,500 crocus flowers to make an ounce of saffron. I thought of those numbers as I stripped stalks of needle grass of their seeds, collecting them for a Nature Conservancy (TNC) project.
