If you have been a subscriber to "A Tallgrass Journal" you certainly noticed the past year's hiatus I've taken from the journal. After long deliberation I've decided I can no longer support the lengthy time spent making even a quarterly journal work. I carried it for 7 years but have made the decision to change it's format to a blog.
I hope you can still find some good reading, information or even a diversion following the occasional posts from the new "A Tallgrass Journal".
I'll still discuss a good "read" I come across; an informative and useful link or website that could be valuable to prairie enthusiasts or owners; and even interject the struggles here at Prairie Hill Farm's prairie.
There are no goals for set time frequency for the new "A Tallgrass Journal" blog. I hope to use it with regular frequency, but the postings will be typical blog length and likely limited to one or two issues/observations/etc at a time. I hope this will be more spontaneous and interesting for prairie folk and the uninitiated as well!
I hope you'll stay with A Tallgrass Journal and drop in from time to time - and even comment! Blogs are perfect for injecting a point of view or to correct me if I need to be! :)
When I think of the prairie I think of grasses, forbs (wildflowers), birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates (insects). As an artist, I work on what interests and inspires me...that's what anyone should do. The tallgrass prairie interests me.
Today I wanted to share a couple cool season natives we have here in our north pasture remnant...yesterday morning was my first opportunity in 2-3 weeks to get out and walk the prairie myself! The morning was perfect for the camera...barely a breath of wind makes photographing grasses and forbs simply a pleasure!
