Today’s post comes from my hike a few days ago on the local, natural prairie. I don’t recall every seeing this wildflower on the prairie before, but I found a small patch of them growing along the edge of the woods:
This is a Shepherd’s Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris), a member of the mustard family, and is a native of Europe. It can be found at nearly any open habitat within the state.
