Prairie Forbs

Spring time on the prairie brings an abundance of color if you look for it!  Having a background in range plant ID and management, I find myself forever surveying our grasslands and testing my knowledge!  Haha ... more like guessing if I can remember!  Well, this sunny lil' herb is one that I do in fact remember.  This is a smooth leaved cinquefoil plant (Potentilla diversifolia), a perennial herb that's low to the ground ... a great place to be if you want to avoid the gale force winds we are still having!
