We just got back from a short trip and were eager to see what’s coming in to bloom here at the PGT. The Gray-headed Coneflowers can be seen blooming just south of the PGT Visitor Center in the Dogleg Prairie. The American Lotus is also coming on nicely. We saw about a dozen cabbage sized flowers in full-bloom on the edge of the Lotus Ponds.
I took this picture of the Gray-headed Coneflower after we went out for a picnic lunch. I was very pleased with the clouds.
