Readd a book about Michigan's landscape

It was very informational!!

Used Wildflowers and Weeds: A Field Guide in Full Color to identify some weeds growing in my garden.

After browsing this book, I now know that they're Marestail (AKA Horseweed or Canadian Fleabane), and I can safely pull them. Marestail isn't a plant that lets off irritating substances, so I don't need to be careful about wearing long sleeves while I get rid of them.
