Mid (to late?) Summer at Prairie Hill Farm

This is a repost from the studio blog today, but this really fits the Tallgrass Journal blog much better I think!
Its really past what I'd consider "mid" summer here on the prairie now, but there is about a month of summer left to enjoy yet! We had one nasty storm just two days ago and were very fortunate that we only lost a couple trees and gained a mess in the landscape with shredded leaves and plants...didn't do the gardens any good either.
I don't think the small prairie here will look too great the rest of the summer but think that "close-up" you may not be too disappointed. I decided to put together an 8 minute video (long for me) of the prairie here before the storm (some footage the day before), much of which was compiled "mid" summer.
(If you get this blog via e-mail subscription, you may not see the embedded video and will have to follow the link to view.)
I'm hoping to make this video part of the "From the Tallgrass" exhibit at Arts on Grand - at the Artist's Reception tonight! One last plug! :) 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. - hope to see you there! The exhibit runs through September 25th so if you can't make the reception, you'll have nearly the "rest of the summer" to make it!
You can go online and view "Mid Summer at Prairie Hill Farm" here - (the HD version is much more fun to watch on you tube any way!)...
Hope to see you on the Tallgrass!!!
