Prairie smoke

There was to be no success the other day in my quest to find Sego lilies, presumably because they have not bloomed yet. An unexpected reward though was a very large area of Prairie smoke in bloom, many more than I have ever seen in one area. They are to me quite pretty as they bloom, but spectacular when they go to seed: I will try to remember to stop back and get a shot or two when they do.

Prairie smoke,
Old man’s whiskers,
Geum triflorum Pursh var. ciliatum
