Sunlight on the prairie… Pamela Breitberg 4 months ago Morning sunlight on the Montrose Harbor Bird and Butterfly Sanctuary. The restored prairie lands in September are thick with end-of-season late bloomers and developing seedheads. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg Still in bloom is the prairie’s native Rosinweed (Silphium). It seems to use the fence as support as if it’s fatigued from a full season of growth and bloom. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg Near the Rosinweed, along the fenceline, is a story to be told. Some moss on the fencepost. A random nail placed in the rope must have had a purpose once upon a time. And a thick spiderweb has been collecting, among other things, some early falling autumn leaves. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg The fenceline is a gentle reminder to remain on the dirt pathway while walking through the prairie environment. The dazzling sunlight shining off the prairie grasses seems heavenly and most inviting. Nature is inspirational and refreshing for the soul. May this autumn give you pause to renew your energy and attitutes.
