Early Summer Spiderwort

Today’s post features a few images I captured back in late June while in the Des Moines, Iowa area, participating in the ArtsFest Midwest Art Show. On one of my free days, I drove to the nearby Neil Smith NWR. While hiking around the area, I found some nice patches of Spiderwort wildflowers in bloom:

If you live near Des Moines, I highly recommend a day trip to the Neil Smith NWR.
