Spring Sights: Broomrape, Ladybug, Thunderhead
I found broomrape Thurs. on Prairie Trail , a trail known for the wildflowers growing along it, off of the wildlife loop in Custer Park. I hadn't seen it before, and it was on my to-find list.
The ladybugs are out and about...
The thunder- heads are back, it must be spring... this one was off at a safe distance while I headed down the loop drive.
