A silvery plume of a milkweed seed shared the wind out on the prairie. It floated along with many others as the dried seed pods opened to share their seeds with the land around.I like watching these and day dreaming while they float and charm in the bright sunlight.Fall has arrived and soon summer clothes and dreams will be put away.
