Last Saturday, I spent some time with other Sunflower State garden bloggers who write at Gaia Garden and There's No Place Like Home.
Our state's native plant society organized its annual wildflower weekend and the three of us made a plan to meet for the event. There were presentations, books, meals, a photo contest and wildflower tours. Saturday afternoon, a caravan of wildflower enthusiasts headed out to some prairie areas shared by ranchers.
This is just a sample of some of the great plants we saw.
I have this plant.
I would love to add these plants.

Time with these ladies was the highlight of the trip.
Aren't we cute in our rainbow of shirts?
It is great how a shared interest in gardening and a little thing called the internet has brought us together. Our paths crossed virtually and now we take paths to be together in person. It was the first time for Gaia Gardener and I to get together even though plants and seeds have already gone from one garden to another. Melanie and I have been able to tour each other's gardens in addition to sharing plants and seeds.
Everyone at the event was friendly and willing to share what they knew. This gentleman was explaining something to my friends.
I took this photo just to show the rolling hills and this beautiful tree. I just love its form. Look how wide its canopy reaches. I do not know what kind of tree it is.
Friends and flowers. Fabulous!
