Take a walk on the wildflower side

Mount Moriah, Mo. – From bright purple to yellow, the colors that wildflowers splash against green grasses are changing this month at the Helton Prairie Natural Area.

Yet flowers such as rigid sunflower and black eyed Susan are in bright-yellow bloom, hinting that autumn is approaching, a time when the grasses like big bluestem turn a reddish-golden hue.
