An excursion to Taliesin Estate…

The Woods We Endured on the Way to the Prairie

Over the hills and through the woods we went in search of an amazing goat prairie. The mosquitos were vicious and much repellant was applied. We eventually broke through to the prairie. The views were stunning as we glanced over the fog shrouded landscape around Taliesin. Lori Antimow spoke about her study and inventory of the site, especially of Skinner’s false foxglove. Other species were noted as we wandered around… a large false foxglove, yellow flax, upland white goldenrod, hairy grama grass and fields of dotted horse mint on the way down from the prairie.
