We drove out to the land we own outside of town (that I haven't written about very much to this point I just realized) to see how things were looking. I had planted prairie grass and wildflowers on 13 acres last year, and have been anxiously waiting to see how they would come up. To my amazement there were wildflowers everywhere! Nothing had really come up to this point, but it would seem that the last big heat wave provided the extra boost. My wife picked this beautiful bunch of wildflowers. She was very happy to see that the land we are planning to build our home on one day is so pretty!
