The Big Melt

The water is running rapidly, the fields are turning to mush and the cardinals are singing at dawn. After being trapped by 16 or so inches of snow on top of an earlier 8 inches, we are emerging from the blizzard’s shroud.
This photo was actually from 2 days ago. With temperatures of 68 yesterday and 70 predicted today, much more of the snow will be gone in a few hours.

About Lorna Domke

Since 1981, I've lived on the land that surrounds, and will eventually be integrated into, the Prairie Garden Trust with my husband, Henry. Our long-term goal is to build on what Henry's parents began and create a nature garden of sorts for others to enjoy. Over the years I've planted prairie, mowed trails, created a website and done whatever I could to enhance what's here. For a few years I served on the board of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Since I retired from my role as Outreach & Education Division Chief at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation in 2010, I've started to put more time into the PGT. The PGT Nature Garden blog is one result.
