Prairie Ridge Ecostation in Raleigh, NC puts on an awesome display of native Autumn wildflowers of North Carolina, including goldenrod, milkweed, cattails, butterflies and prettiness. A quick visit yielded some gorgeous images of Autumn. The temperature is finally non-summer, although still not the fall chill that should be coming. Prairie Ridge is all about the native plants and trees of the Raleigh area. There is also a pond surrounded by cattails, milkweed and the pond is full of duckweed. The butterflies and birds love it here.
