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.
