Duck walk


On my way this morning to the Illinois Native Plant Sale, I met these ducks walking along the road. They were shy at first, but soon they were following me everywhere. When I turned around, they turned around. Then, I was following them everywhere. Was funny.

LOL! I like ducks. Natural born comedians. And they look so pick-upable.

So do tell, what are the native plants of Illinois?

By the time I got to the sale, it was closed. Blame it on the ducks. :) I have lived in Illinois most of my life and to tell you the truth, I don't know what the native plants are. If I had to guess, I'd say prairie tall grass and milkweed. Not the most exotic plants around, eh? Oh! I bet sumac is native to Illinois. I'd love to live in a place where the orchids grow wild on the forest floor.
