One of our favorite wildflower is Prairie Smoke (Geum triflorum). Gazing into a field of these flowers is like watching a full on action movie yet motion is only implied.
Milk Weed, from bud to flower, posing nicely in the evening sunlight.
Everywhere we look on our daily walk milk weed is springing forth. Most plants have buds just waiting to burst into flower while a few have started their blooms. We all know milkweed is an important flower for the Monarch Butterfly but given its abundance it helps sustain many pollinators both large and small.
Summer is truly upon us…on your mark, get set….go.
Along Clear Creek in Denver, CO.
Wandering around on the Pawnee National Grasslands last weekend it was quite clear the land is thirsty.
Areas where temporary ponds usually are found are dry as a bone this year.
Flowers from last year remain but the new flowers are asking for rain.
A vast landscape in search of a drink…where are you April Showers.
