Soft Healing at the Arb



For their part, these individuals who have strayed outside the law-like the Ford engineers, the loyal cadre of longtime Arb volunteers, and those slightly surprised orientation students-take away unique memories of their time helping out on Grese's and Gray's projects. One tattooed young man proudly shows a photo of a Massasauga rattlesnake-not terribly uncommon at Botanical Gardens-he took on his cell phone. An older man looks forward to bringing his children out to Matthaei "when I have time." He wants to show them something special. He laughs. "Purple love grass. Can you believe it, this place has purple love grass!"
