Salt Meadow Prairie
Someone, no idea who---decided that this area should have a Midwestern grasses and wild flowers landscape.
Ecologically incorrect but so charming. Notice the diversity! Bachelor Buttons, coreopsis, black-eyed susan, pink coneflowers, queen anne's lace, Californai poppies..and more!
...and it speaks to my prairie childhood...
A thunderstorm loomed the entire time...
And lightning flashed far away over the mainland...
The marsh itself was quiet but the osprey family was still there in its nest. At least two adults and I think three young ones, almost grown but still home with Mama.
The marsh survived the various storms, as always.
