New map stretching tool

Here is a link to a new mixed map of the Michaux State Forest around Mont Alto. This is a cool application that lets you stretch a map over the Yahoo imagery. It is also pretty easy to use. You upload the map image and identify two points on the map and imagery.

Mystery Flowers

In late August these mystery flowers appeared behind our house. This was an area near a lawn that had been under tree cover for many years. . It was then exposed to the sun after a white pine was destroyed by wind last fall and our landlord cleard out a few other trees. It looks like an amyrillis of some kind? It only lasted a few day before withering away. With luck, they will be back next year!
