Wordless Wednesday: Queen of the Prairie

QueenOfThePrairie_IMG_3035

Almost wordless: I saw this flower blooming a few weeks ago in a wetland area, but wasn’t sure what it was. After some research, I found that it is Filipendula Rubra, a native prairie plant that is now endangered in Illinois.

      I’d never seen it before and I walk the nature trails a lot. I saw it in an area that’s being rehabbed and it was making me crazy… I had to know what it was!
