Prairie Smoke seed heads (in front of a fence that you cannot see in this photo)
This is not a common wild flower in south-central Ontario, but grows beautifully on the Carden Plain northeast of where I live.
Prairie Smoke flowers
On the Carden Plain, most of the Prairie Smoke grows within the confines of pasture fences, but a few wayward plants grow on the outside.
Inside one of the fences
The seed heads look a bit like pink smoke in the distance.

Never seen Prairie Smoke before. It is a gorgeous wildflower. Great photos!
It's a new one for me. It's also a beaut.
Oh wow, the Prairie Smoke looks beautiful. I love the pretty color. The first shot is lovely. Have a happy day!
I've never seen that plant before. What a perfect name for it! It's so pretty.
Didn't know you'd find fields of that near Carden. Beautiful!
I have never seen this flower before...very pretty! That first photo is a real winner!!
It's so pretty.
This is a new one for me, very pretty... and made even more so by your skills!
the last photo shows why they call it prarie smoke, this is one beautiful plant, i love the first shot of it. i want one
never seen it before either. I wonder is it a protected flower like the trillium?
wow! really neat plant! thanks, tina!
It's so wispy and beautiful! Wish I could run across this in my travels down the road.
Always nice to see a wild flower flourishing. Unusual plant, too.
I don't know this plant, but it is beautiful.
WoW-zers, they are really beautiful...i don't think i have ever seen anything like this!!!!
That photo #1 has got me in awe.
I also like the rest of your takes.
Never have seen that before. Beautiful!!!!!
Those are great. What an interesting flower they are.
Wonderful! I have never seen anything like this!
This is wonderful! Love the close-up shots.
So glad you shared this as I never heard of it. Being an Canada plant, I would not. I visited your part of the world once and loved it.
Wonderful photos, especially your first one!
I've seen them here and there, but I didn't know the name.
That is a first for me. Never seen that flower before. I like the name they gave it.
Yes, a first for me, too!! And what beauty!! Terrific captures for the day as always, Tina!! There is a lot of beauty in your world! Thanks for sharing it!! Hope your week is going well!
Love all the lines in that first photo.
Love all the lines in that first photo.
Sweet. Well shown.
ALOHA from Honolulu,
I love the 'smoke' (maybe the only time I would ever say that sentence.) Beautiful wildflower and I do see the fence.
These are new to me. So beautiful. And I love the name - it's perfect!
Oh what lovely flowers! And I love the rusty fence in the background of the one shot. Beautiful!
I've never seen this before, EG!
An extraordinarily beautiful widlflower. It looks like a fairy's web in the first photo.
Love that first picture, very beautiful...
Love that first shot!!! A beautiful flower......:)JP
so cool!! what a neat bloom. ( :
Não conheço essa planta, mas a primeira foto é mágica!...
Muita paz e muitas alegrias!
This flower is new to me! I love it.
Very new plant/flower to me, Tina.
Love that first photo - so dreamy...
Have a Beautiful Day!
I don't believe I have seen this flower before. It is very pretty. Love the images you posted today with that lovely rusty fence in the background.
That first shot is amazing.
The name seems very appropriate. I have seen something very like it around here, but I'm not enough of a botanist to tell if it is the same. and we have no prairies :-)
So beautiful flowers! Love them :)
I love the seed heads, they're very pretty.
What is interesting flower! Very nice photos and thanks for sharing this information about the flower.
Have a wonderful weekend.

What a beautiful plant, easy to see where it got the name.
Lovely wildflower, and a new one to me.
I've never heard of Prairie Smoke before but I think it's quite lovely. I enjoyed your photos of it and the fence very much.
So beautiful! And love the name. It would make a good title for a book or painting. But to really think about it, it would probably spark fear if prairie smoke was seen in earlier times.
Very pretty flower with a lovely name. It is sort of wispy and smokey as the name suggests.
What an interesting flower. Never heard of prairie smoke, but from your first close-up image I can really see why it's called that.
What a beautiful and interesting plant. I love that first photo - you can definitely get the "smoke" feel from it.
