Stop to Smell the Flowers-July 25, 2014

July 26bJuly 26We are getting into the peak of the native flower bloom.  Our chunk of prairie is beginning to dazzle.  The Little Bluestem grass is headed out with its bronze seed heads and the Ratibidas and Coneflowers are in full bloom.

Certainly there has been some fantastic early blooms and there are certainly more to come as we head toward the later part of summer, but now during the muggy heat of mid-summer it is definitely time to stop and smell the flowers.  The dogs slow down as we walk in the heat.  Even they, panting in the steamy afternoon, seem to be ready to stop and smell the flowers.

Don’t let the glorious summer days in flyover country pass you by too fast, stop to take a good whiff!
