But at my feet, protected in low grass, Broomweed — a tiny golden wildflower — stayed (relatively) still.
Broomweed is so tiny and this stand was so small that I hadn't even noticed the golden, grass-high flowers until the wind gusts came.
And by grass-high, I mean the height of the grass in the mown pathway on which I was walking, not the height of natural prairies grasses left free to grow...
As for these flowers, each are only about 3 mm high.
Sometimes what seems like a obstacle can be an advantage...I'm glad I looked down and saw these deep yellow Prairie wildflowers, with their dark narrow leaves.
