A few need to knows. How to prevent bug bites. How to identify poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. How to identify plants poisonous to human beings.
So pluck that spruce tip, and pop it into your mouth.
Sip the sweet nectar of the lilac flower.
Hold that bright, yellow dandelion under your chin and make a wish.
