Fern Valley Prairie...the rayed composites are assuming dominance!

the three flowers from the top down are Ratibida pinnata, Helianthus sp., and Echinacea sp.

Hey, I used to know the species, but I'm getting old. Yesterday was the first day of summer and already the Meadow and Prairie are coloring up. Joan, Michael, et alia have been working; the populations of both areas are shifting in a good direction. There are a lot more appropriate grasses than I remember in years past; Indian grass, Panic grass, Little bluestem, ... I like it.
