Stories from the tall grass prairie in the Kansas Flint Hills.

The Rain Returns
West, into the rain.
At this time last year the ponds were all dry or almost dry. Being prairie, there was a hay crop but it was considered poor. Rainfall changed everything. The ponds are filling and the grass is extravagant, beautiful and green. I like seeng the geometry of the large bales across the landscape.
And when the rains clear, there is always the jeweled Kansas sky.
