Prairie Walk

 


 
Grey Headed Coneflowers

 
Compass Plant
 
 
Milkweed Beetles will live their entire life on one plant sometimes
 
The song of a tiny bird calls to me
Sending thoughts of happiness and glee
This happiness floats across the land
Carried on a gentle prairie breeze
To be shared by both you and me.
 
 

 
White Clover
 
 
Milkweed blooms sweeten the air
Making me stop and wondering where
I can stand to enjoy them better.
 


 
Another new Bluebird family
 
 
 Pearl Crescent
 


 
This area was burned last year

  8. Very nice set. The first coneflower is especially beautiful. The burned area seems to have recovered nicely.

  9. Great group of photos, Steve. Love seeing the little Bluebird Eggs... Those little birds are just so awesome.

    Amazing how many little bugs count on the flowers for their meals. We have more bees this year than we've ever had.. They LOVE the roses... I love having them around --but I don't like the Japanese Beetles which can destroy the roses...

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  15. You don't miss a thing, do you? I love where your camera takes us.. especially to a nest with lovely blue eggs. Controlled burnt areas always grow so incredibly green the next year. Lovely photos, one and all.
