Late August Prairie

August is drawing to a close, and McKnight Prairie is dressing itself in purple and gold for a Minnesota fall.

Rough Blazing Star (Liatris aspera)

Stiff Goldenrod (Solidago rigida)

Also blooming are flowering spurge, prairie onion, ground cherry, false boneset, and other varieties of goldenrod.

This makes me so excited for autumn. Even when I'm sad to see summer wind down, too.

Oh, man. This reminds me that I keep meaning to go out to McKnight before the snow flies. Have any time for a "work" (for me) trip this month, Rob?

Really nice, Rob! Beautiful scenery.
