Walking stick, Arkansas cane, walking staff, trekking poles, pilgrim’s staffs, hiking stick—the term you use doesn’t matter. What this stick will do is make it easier to walk, hike, climb hills, cross streams. The stick will take strain off your knees and back, clear spider webs, or part thick bushes or grass covering the trail.
Made from branches or saplings such as sassafras, hickory, sweet gum, many walking sticks are carved or decorated with small trinkets or charms.
Crepe myrtles are chiefly known for their colorful and long-lasting, summer flowers. The crinkled flower edges are like crepe paper and give the shrub its name.
This shy bird can be hard to see, but it delivers an amazing song for its size. Follow its “teakettle-teakettle” and other exclamations through backyard or forest, and you may see glimpses of this bird’s cinnamon color, white eyebrow stripe, and long, up-turned tail.
