City Scene

Natural Roadside Attraction

Sometimes you've just got to stop and smell the flowers

A mare and her colt graze in a field along Prairie Central Rd on Tuesday.

 

hile out for a drive Tuesday on Prairie Central Rd. we pulled over and got out to stretch and this is what we saw.

 

Most of the photos here were taken while leaning on the car hood. Exquisite, natural beauty is always waiting in micro-eco niches here and there whenever we have time to stop and take a look.

 

It was an interesting peek Tuesday at the area's flora and fauna, like the eagle that floated overhead, or the hawk that lurked nearby. From bees to butterflies and even the odd five-leaf clover.
