Ah, the temperature was so nice this afternoon. No breeze and 62 degrees, I could not have asked for better. Today's mission on the grasslands was to check if the Trout Lilies (Erythronium mesochoreum) were blooming.
This is the second part of our prairie scouting trip on Saturday. This is the Three Sisters farm. David told us he acquired the land in 1991. He named it Three Sisters for his three daughters. Nice name! The land was not in very good shape. David has been trying to restore it. He has planted five acres plots with some not so successful and some that did well over the years. It is still a work in progress. If you check the Ft. Worth Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas blog, he said he will keep us up-to-date on his progress. Go David!
It was so much fun yesterday to get out with a bunch of experts in the prairie. I always get to learn new stuff. Carol and Richard's work show on their beautiful prairie, Clark Haven. Thank you for sharing it with us!
