Prairie Smoke

If we get lucky and finally get a bit of warmer weather then it will not be too long before I will be able to go out and photograph some more prairie smoke. This native member of the rose family requires a good amount of sun which is why it prefers dry prairie. It is usually one of the first wild flowers to bloom in the spring time.
