Hi, Benjamin

Glad to see someone close to Omaha in this group. Was just in Lincoln a couple of weeks ago at a picnic in Antelope Park, drove around that area and there is so beautiful public flower gardens in the Lincoln area.

Greetings, Benjamin, from an MG in central Oklahoma.  Started a mini-prairie last year, waiting to see how it develops.

August flowers in Maine

"We are waiting for some of that rain to come to the west coast! These fires are killing our forests & ranchlands. The smoke just ends any recreation activities for two summers in WA state."
