Sunny Day in Iowa

Prairie Restoration Area at Lake Macbride State Park

Each time I walk on the state park trail there are different wildflowers in bloom. Today’s offering was some of my favorites.

After returning from the day’s exercise, I mowed the front yard and couldn’t make out the line where the back yard started. Grass apparently wasn’t tall or thick enough to need cutting so I stopped and put the mower away until there would be enough to use as mulch.

I raked what few grass clippings there were for the garden, checked the moisture in the last few seedlings, and went inside to spend the rest of the day as temperatures climbed toward 90 degrees. We’re to have several days like this without rain.

We enjoy sunny days while we can. The restored prairie shows its pleasure in them with wildflowers in bloom.
