Part of Springbrook Prairie‘s 1832 acres was fenced off to make an off-leash dog park which is a wonderful place for our active sheltie, Cody, to run like the wind.  Late September is one of my favorite times to visit this prairie as it fairly glows with color from goldenrod and asters.  Since my husband was there to keep track of the dog, I could slow down and enjoy the beauty.  Monarchs were nectaring on the asters, but since it was windy, it was hard to capture them.  Afterwards I did a quick watercolor sketch using my memories of the day.  Enjoy!
