Gas & Summer Update

The weather is beautiful, despite the frequent rains. All manner of true wildflowers are blooming - Black Eyed Susan, Queen Anne's Lace, Chicory, White Heath Aster, Red & White Clover, Yucca, and my favorite, Butterfly Milkweed. Then, there's the planted flowers: Purple Coneflower, Tickeseed Coreopsis, Tiger Lilies (aka daylilies). The native warm-season tallgrasses are starting to grow; the cool season tallgrass, Eastern Gamma, is doing well in the back 40. The main trails are opened, although mowed a bit high, and the creek has many new sandbars for the arrowhead/artifact hunter.

Warrensburg gas prices are very competitive. This past week, most stations were $3.69, at least 10 cents below what we saw in Kansas City on Tuesday. Together with our Summer Special, Cedarcroft is a very affordable getaway.
