To the right you see an image of Pinkweed just starting bloom. It's a very nice little multiple flower head. Polygonum bloom just about everywhere, on prairies, along the edges of cultivated gardens, in big city allies, and between the cracks in expressways. A survivor, no matter what.
Some good news. A contemporary art gallery, the A. Montgomery Ward Gallery, at the University of Illinois at Chicago will mount an exhibition of about 20 of my prairie wildflower photo images from February 15 to March 16, 2011. This is the first major exhibition of my work at an art gallery. I am excited.
