Saturday Funday!

Saturday!!!! Woohoo!!!

The Andes crew took a break with many of us going in to Alexandria to do laundry, do grocery shopping, and drink coffee. I spent my late morning and afternoon out at Hegg Lake looking for candidates for seed collection. There were many flowers that were blooming, including the Rough Blazing Star (Liatris aspera).

A new flowering individual for me was the Prairie Cord Grass (Spartina Pectinata).

Along with pretty plants, I had the opportunity to watch a Northern Harrier hunt and successfully catch dinner. There was also a pelican checking out a small pond.
