In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
This native plant is growing well in my garden this year. Two years ago, my brother, who is a master of native prairie plants, gave me a small cutting of this plant. I brought it home and stuck it in my garden. Last year it began to grow a bit, but stayed small and never bloomed. This year, it is getting big and looks like it will be blooming soon. I sent an email with a photo to my brother, unfortunately he can't identify the plant. Can anyone else ID this whispy plant?
