We’ve had sustained windy weather for the last three days. The wind has stayed in the 20 to 35 mile per hour range with no let-up. Certainly not hurricane force but enough to keep the abundant pollen of late summer moving.
The native black-eyed Susans and native sunflowers are blooming, along with a number of other late-season natives. As I looked over about 160 acres of newly- seeded prairie habitat, the blooming wild sunflowers had turned the landscape golden. The seeds produced from these plants will provide abundant food for the wild birds. Certainly, downwind of that tract of land, it was a pollicane.
