... NOTES ON THE MICHIGAN FLORA PART V-OLIVER ATKINS FARWELL The
year 1921 was exceptionally auspicious for field work, being for
the most part dry and hot. Fortunately what little rain there was,
fell during the nights or on days not set apart for botanizing. On
April 8, I gathered a few specimens of Carex varia, the first time
in my thirty years of collecting here that I have seen it within
the city limits. On May 15, when Mr. Walpole of Ypsilanti took me
around the country in the vicinity of that place and in Pittsfield

southwestern part of the State. Near Washington on June 21, again

This is a very early record for the flowering of goldenrod in
Michigan. On this day's tramp we found a grove of Ailanthus in all
stages of development from the seedling to fruit-producing trees;
there were hundreds of them covering a territory of several acres
in extent. A peculiarity about these young trees of the open woods,
not observed in those of the cities, is that the terminal shoots
freeze back during the winter For Parts I, II, and III, see
