Happy Friday Everyone!!
Tomorrow is our pig roast… mmmm. I will post photos later so you can drool also.
Stiff sunflower (Helianthus pauciflorus) enjoy the sun with all the other beautiful prairie flowers. Coneflower (echinacea) create colonies along with the other blooms throughout the fields creating a patchwork quilt.
Joe Pye weed (eupatorium maculatum), grey cone flower (ratibida pinnata) and compass plant (Silphium laciniatum).
The compass plant derived it’s name from the early settlers to the tallgrass prairies. They believed the leaves pointed north to south, however unfortunately, it is not always true.
