These Large Flowered Beardstongue were all over the hillside. I have seen a few of the smaller flowered varieties, but these remind me that I was in the Nebraska Sandhills at this time of year watching buffalo.
What had only been green with lots of blue Spiderwort last week, is very white this week. As you can see there is a massive prairie area as well as wetlands and woodlands.
This is an heirloom variety of dianthus I grow, it reminds me of a frilly orchid found in a very small area of the prairie.
This beetle seems to be playing with it's shadow on a Brown-eyed Susan.
I hope you enjoyed a few magic moments in my day.I have lots more I could have shared, I played all day outdoors. Sent a bouquet of pics to cheer up a good friend. Hope to pick some gooseberries and make a dessert today. Stop in for a piece.
Take a peek at Nature Center Magazine online , http://www.nc-mag.com/, if you haven't had a chance. What a great place to share your pics and interests. I have posts there and enjoy what they have to offer. Each week they have a blog of the week, maybe it should be yours!
