I should introduce the players in this blog. My name is Julie Raasch and I’m a graphic designer, photographer, jewelry artist and naturalist. I walk with Lilly, my dog, through our prairie daily. During these walks I make observations, take photos and often just meditate on my world, both natural and otherwise. Our prairie is located in Primrose Township, in Dane County, Wisconsin. It is 30 minutes outside of Madison and 15 minutes from both Mount Horeb and New Glarus. We are close to the the original La Follette farm.
This blog has come into being because I have been leaving nature reports on my husband’s cell for some time now. The nature report usually contains observations I made while walking Lilly, my dog, in our prairie. I usually include things like what is blooming today or what just starting to bloom. I also decided I wanted to digitally document our prairie. I have documented the plants in the past and had stopped until recently. I realized all my documented plants were on film. So now it’s time to document them again! I will share my observations as well as my photography.
