Queen of the Prairie and Other Wonders

There is nothing quite as lovely as tall clouds of ethereal pink queen-of-the-prairie spread out across a wetland field.  Today at the fen we also saw lots of delicate pink swamp milkweed which attract monarchs and other beneficial insects, joe pye-weed just starting to bloom, lavender wild bergamot, bright yellow cinquefoil, pink wild roses, and many other wildflowers.  We even spotted some large turtles sunning themselves by the stream.  Big frogs were a-belching as we passed.
