Words 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 in early spring, sometimes as super blooms!
They are called Plains Greenthread (or Navajo Tea)
Among the Navajo Tea, I also find this purple Penstemon early!
The lupines and Colorado Four O’clocks will come later… but for now,
I am simply grooving on the beauty that surrounds me.

It is beautiful when nature paints with color. I had a good time taking pictures of wildflowers on a local walking trail this morning; we must have been thinking along similar lines.
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.
Nothing cheers quite like the colour of spring flowers! Thank you!!!
