Charles and Vickie Carpenter of Franklin would like to announce the upcoming marrage of their daughter, Francis Marie Carpenter, to Marshall Adam Richardson, son of Cathy Richardson and the late Stanley Richardson of Clearwater, S.C.

The couple will be married on Saturday, June 28, 1 p.m. at Rankin Square across from the clock tower in downtown Franklin.

Following the ceremony, the reception will be held at the Macon County Community Facilities Building in Franklin.

Family and friends of the couple are invited to attend.

Plant ecologist Tim Spira will present a program “Beyond Identification: The Ecology of Wildflowers,” Thursday, June 26, at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Macon County Public Library.

Spira will expound on the many interesting ways that plants adapt to their environments and how to interpret common features of native plants.

He will answer such questions as, why flowers are so variable in size, color, shape, and fragrance or why fruits change color as they age, and why some fruits are sweet and others are not? And, why leaves differ in size, shape, and color?

The answers to questions such as these adds a new dimension to understanding and appreciating wildflowers.
