Sunflowers in the Flint
(Click on photo for larger view)
Balmy and breezy on Sunday afternoon, September 5, 1999 finds the wild sunflowers in full bloom,
reminding us that Summer is coming to end and the prelude of Fall will be upon us.
Butterflies are still abundant and a Collored Lizard (second photo from left) was caught taking a sun
bath, which we almost missed while traveling an unmaintained back roadway in Wabaunsee County.
Other flowers adorn old rock fences in Southern Wabaunsee County. Photo on right is
typical of ponds and small lakes in the Flint Hills.
Hill sides are not the luster of green they were this past Spring,
as the Summer has been very hot and dry for the most part.
