Sunday Stroll: Around The Prairie

A cool morning turning warm
Tells us fall is approaching
But summer is still around.






Family picnic of Milkweed Beetles
This sage is just starting to bloom, a treat for migrating Monarch Butterflies.

Those first color changes are yet a warning of summer coming to an end.

This will be covered in cedar boughs for and upcoming pow-wow.


Visit Marcie the originator of Sunday Strolls. Her Quiet Country House in Michigan is always a treat to visit.

  1. We are coming up on my favorite time of year. The vibrant colors are already coming out of hiding. The sumac leaves are turning blood-red and the rust colored heads are flourishing.

  2. Steve, Love the stroll. The first image is stunning. Love the simplicity and the color palette. I hope we get to see the cedar covered structure (lodge?) for the Powwow. Looks so interesting!

  7. This summer seems to have flown by. I'm seeing some subtle changes in leaf color around here. Nothing dramatic yet, though. Love the Amberwing in the first shot. And the sage is gorgeous.

  12. Just the slightest tinge to the horse chestnut trees here tells of Autumn coming.
