the morning after the rain...
Another fabulously beautiful morning in the prairie, it started like a perfect Wisconsin (yes, I said Wisconsin) morning--crisp, cool and clear. The air was so fresh, I wanted to bottle it! And it should be, what with all the rain yesterday and more predicted for today.
Then I spied this beauty--looks just like a blue carnation-gorgeous and the only one I've seen. I am sure most of these flowers would be considered weeds, but their delicacy in this harsh terrain is inspiring.
Why, it's so darn purty--the dadgum fence posts are handsome and strong; standing as silent sentinels along the unworked fields.
Yup, sometimes I just need to be reminded why I love it out here in the middle of nowhere.
