"Someone asked me what I was doing, lying down," the man next to me said at breakfast at The Convent Inn in Val Marie. "I pointed at the Prairie Smoke, and he said, 'That weed???'"
I laughed, because I, too, had been low on ground, trying to capture some of the beauty of these Saskatchewan wildflowers. I love their white and crimson tassels, which make me think of wild-headed dolls.
