There is as yet no ethic dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it. Land, like Odysseus' slave-girls, is still property. The land-relation is still strictly economic, entailing privileges but not obligations.

Nodding Wild Onion occurs in large, scattered areas, most notably in much of the midwest and along the Rocky Mountains. It sports narrow leaves and a spray of flowers that nod from a slender central stalk.

Nodding Wild Onion flowers in summer, and prefers open areas such as prairies, meadows, and even roadsides. This individual was in the Chiwaukee Prairie, in southeastern Wisconsin.
