Today's Finds

The prairie continues to change, with some flowers fading and others just starting to bloom.  Here's a few of today's finds -

Western Spiderwort
This flower is such an intense blue.  It's a morning bloomer, closing by noon. 

Blue Mist Penstemon

Scarlet Gaura

I've gone back a couple of posts and made some identification corrections, by the way.

And last, updates.  Day 2 of Elvis' clinic went great, and Callie is about 90% better.  Yes!

That Blue Mist Penstemon is gorgeous! I looked it up, but it only grows in the West. I'm glad that Callie continues to improve.

Beautiful photos! I misidentified some sage as thyme. I need to correct that on my blog. Thanks for the fox moat idea that you left on John's blog. I would love to run a second fence around the three acres, but I would need to find some low cost fencing. Hope Callie cat is all better.
