I had a lot of fun with color in this one. The title, not so much. Any suggestions?
When Grant Woods was first dedicated as a forest preserve, It was fairly choked with brush and lower quality trees. Oaks could not regenerate in all that mess, let alone all the wonderful savanna plants we keep finding. This past year in particular has been quite a year of clearing, with huge swaths being opened up, as you see here. Now with light streaming in, asters and goldenrod can light up the field where just last year it was nothing but a grey tangle of branches.
