[To see photos and stories of this prairie in other years, go to the links on the main Cat’s Paw Prairie page.]
This year the prairie is 11 years old. It has turned into a very successful planting – lots of diversity; there’s still Queen Anne’s Lace, but not as much as before; and lots of flowering in mid-summer.
