A massive bloom of Spiderwort flowed over the hillside. I have found some large patches, but this went on forever. This is some of the beauty one finds exploring the prairies.It never seems the same, changing from year to year as we do. Each day there is a new treasure to find and I enjoy visiting new areas as well as old. Some are almost like family to me, having sown the seeds,and then seeing my artwork flourish.It never fails to amaze me, and often feeds my heart with love and devotion.I extend my arms at my sides, palms up, and feel this beauty ebb into my heart. Often I pass on a prayer of health and happiness to all I have met and love, and send it off on a gentle prairie breeze for all to enjoy.

  8. That Goats Beard is appropriately named, isn't it? I don't think I've seen an Ebony Jewelwing. It's a beauty.

  9. I am in love with that purple poppy mallow! Spiderwort is one of my favorite flowers. I have it everywhere. They all came from a load of topsoil, delivered after the cabin was built. In the middle of the dirt (someday to become a lawn) was one lone spiderwort blooming like crazy. I dug it up and transplanted it into my flower bed. It has flourished and is one of my favorite flowers. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos. I really enjoy them.
