Standing Tall & Proud

Today’s post comes from a visit to nearby Dorsett Hill Prairie, about a week ago. Tall Bellflowers (Campanula americana) are beautiful wildflowers that tend to grow at the edge of woodlands. While hiking this prairie, I found a nice stand of these wildflowers growing in the meadow near the entrance to the wooded trail. Often, the flowers are torn or not filled out very well, but this day’s find was in extraordinary condition. Here are a few of my favorite images:
