Early spring wildflowers in Southern Colorado

IMGP6069Words cannot properly capture the wonder and beauty of spring up here at 7,000 feet. Granted, it does take a long time to get here, but when it does, it is true magic. These yellow flowers appear everywhere, as shown on my heading above!

The lupines and Colorado Four O’clocks will come later… Colorado Four O'Clock

  1. Oh, maybe I will share the picture I took of the pretty little blue bell-shaped flowers we saw in Chatauqua on facebook later on and see if you can tell me what they are. So pretty! The picture didn’t come out well, I should’ve brought my Optio for flower close-ups, but you can see what they look like.
