Good Morning to everyone! It’s a gorgeous day here in Marion- the temperature is headed for the 80’s again and the sun is shining bright! I took a walk through the prairie this morning to take a few pictures. It’s a great time to be out there. Even though there isn’t much in bloom, there is a lot of activity taking place. The birds were very active- especially the swallows! They were flying high and swooping low and singing their song all throughout. They’ve discovered the 6 new bird boxes that were added to the prairie last week. I’m hoping they move in to the boxes soon!
The prairie is greening up a bit as new growth emerges from the soil. I was able to find a few plants in bloom including spring beauty, violets and a few toadshade trilliums. Enjoy the pictures from today’s walk!
