Dark clouds gathering over our prairie restoration site next to the Astro-Physics factory. The Baptesia plant is a wild Illinois native species that flowers in early to late spring. Also known as Wild False Indigo.

It's nice that you've got a prairie restoration underway there, Roland. Dramatic photos, as well.
The last time we drove back to visit my family in Illinois, we made a point of staying off of I-70 all the way through Kansas,
so we could experience the old pastoral spaces from the slow lane. smile The highlight was visiting a Tall-Grass Prairie Preserve,
that had been a grand old ranch with soil too rocky to be have been tilled. I believe it was donated to the Nature Conservancy.
Perhaps I'll dig up some pictures.
