Near Patty’s home in Missouri City there is an area of man made lakes, four small ones to be exact, where they all go fishing during the summer months. She took me by last week when I was searching for WATER and I found something much better. The area around these small lakes has been designated as a prairie restoration area. Instead of planting domesticated vegetation the land is being allowed to return to its natural state. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy formal gardens as much as I know you all do, I see the photos of irises and Roses and find them extraordinarily beautiful but this small area of prairie land with its array of wild flowers was moving to the max. Here are just a few of the Texas wild flowers – the prairie as the first settlers must have seen it before a more advanced society too over. Enjoy.
In case you didn’t notice yesterday I inserted in the left sidebar a map of this area for your reference.
Double click the photos to see them just a bit larger.
