Lonesome Prairie

With the last of the snow and ice finally gone from our small acreage I look to the delayed emergence of the spring wild flowers in our oak and pine woods. In the meantime a quick look at our tiny restored prairie from last late summer and fall. The bank along our east facing subdivision road proved to be to much work to keep weeded or mowed. A three years effort in this sunny patch turned it into a mini prairie. Take a look.....

  5. So much lovely color with so little work now that it is established. That was a smart move.

  6. Hi Ray, I love these photos of your mini prairie. Wow, definitely worth all the work. To answer your excellent question on my blog ... I don't think the Clippers will complete the trip around the world in less than 80 days. :-) For example, just the race across from China to USA took about 28 days. All the details are on the Clipper website but it does take some digging around to find answers like how many days have they been at sea total. https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/
    Have a great rest of your weekend!

  10. Glad to hear that the endless winter of 2018 has finally left my favorite state. Gorgeous native prairie plants. I hope you'll be seeing them again in a few months.

  11. Dear Troutbirder, the prairie is gorgeous. I think we need to let a lot of land become prairie again. that would so help wildlife. Peace.

  12. Isn't it wonderful when you envision something like your prairie and then see it come to fruition. Absolutely gorgeous and maybe this year it will be even lovelier, if that is possible.
