The Nature of Phenology: Arrowhead flowering

by Hazel Stark

While Maine doesn’t boast the longest or most intense summer season, we sure do have a pleasing variety of outdoor recreational opportunities that satisfy, regardless of the weather. Chilly morning? Hike a mountain to warm up. Hot and humid? Head to a lake or ocean beach to cool off on a swim. Warm and still? Head out for a mellow paddle by canoe or kayak and take in the sights you wouldn’t normally see on foot. Right now, a freshwater paddle in shallow water may reward you with a glimpse of the flowers of a unique and useful plant: arrowhead.
