Beauty Of The Prairie

Pin It

Here are all my posts showing the ever-changing, but always beautiful prairie. Come watch wild turkeys foraging, geese on a frozen pond, prairie chickens doing their spring mating dance, and grazing white tail deer. The native wildflowers are all in bloom here: from wild sunflowers to purple prairie clover, black-eyed susans to prairie wild roses.  Take a helicopter ride over the Flint Hills and up the Blue River, or go for a walk  through the wildflowers searching for a herd of bison.

Pop some popcorn and relax as you treat yourself to the Beauty of the Prairie.
