July is a beautiful time to visit prairies...especially the one at Prairie Pond Woods! The summer has been mild, so Cyon and I have been enjoying our morning and evening walks. Below are a few of the wonderful things we encountered along the way...like this box turtle (she leaves them be).
You are always invited to book a Heart by Nature retreat and take your own Discovery Walks at Prairie Pond Woods.
