This is the view I have captured many times over the years, starting in Fall 2009.  The images below are in chronological order.  In this most recent view, above, it shows the effect of a late summer mowing from last year, even nine months ago.  I may be mowing again soon, to catch the flowering heads of the persistent cheatgrass. 

4/10/10, so about a month earlier in Spring.

Early June, 2010?  I don't think I used this image in a post...The Clarkia (pink flowers) became even thicker that year, with so little to compete with them.  They have thinned considerable in this area since, but are thicker further south in the prairie.
