Shafts of Light

Early morning light in the woodlands still knocks my socks off. The prairie clovers and gama grass have just started blooming. I saw my first purple bloom of Liatris cylindracea this morning before the terrible tennis match, but I think it was just a little eager--buds are still forming on most of the plants. The woodlands are now full of young birds whose calls are a little tricky to determine sometimes. The warm season grasses continue to grow, and the big bluestem clocked in today at 7 ft. tall.
