After having been away from The New Prairie for two weeks, I came back to see that spring has come. Several flowers are blooming in colors of yellow, blue, violet, white and red. Most flowers are found outside of the construction fence on strips of green grass along the edges. On the broader strip of grass on the north side, groups of daisies are blooming. Canola can be seen blooming on both sides of the fence. Chestnut shoots have sprouted from one of the logs by the benches and beside another log a couple of poppies are growing.
