Purple Coneflower.  This species of Purple Coneflower does well as a domestic and also a wildflower.  I collect the seeds in the fall and throw them to the wind-easy to spread.

Hysop on our prairie.

Thunderhead just north of Rushford, Mn about  9 Pm last night.  Could see lightening but could not hear thunder, so the storm was at least 30 miles away.

St. John's Wort.  Every few day a new flower appears on our little one acre prairie.

Wild Bergamot

Yellow Coneflower(grey-headed coneflower)

Rosin Weed

Black-eyed Susan and white fleabane in a new planting(really weedy), but this part of the prairie will look totally different next year-hopefully the Blazing Stars will appear.

We have been seeing quite a few young Killdeer lately.  They are not car smart, and we often have to slow down for them.

                             
                                        The Dickcissel has been singing everyday on our little prairie for over a
                                         month now.
