Things I found on Prairie Hill today...

East side of Prairie Hill
Walking around "Prairie Hill" this evening I found some beautiful little 
jump-on-spring flowers growing out of this dry, rocky terrain,,,
"Crow Poison" or "False Garlic"
"Missouri Violet"
"Spring Beauty"
"Narrow Leafed Puccoon"
Spiral Lichen
Altar to a Broken Heart
And I found a broken heart!
Yes, I picked it up and brought it home.  :)

I'm working on a small watercolor journal of prairie flowers.  I've painted 18 flowers so far and I'm using my latest book, Roadside Flowers of Oklahoma, to help with identification.   This is a very informative, yet relaxing and meditative 'project.'
