Almost Wordless Wednesday: Columbines

Near our Crested Butte campsite, there was a talus slope that was covered in Columbines. I have never seen so many in one place as there.

  5. KB, Columbines are definitely one of my favorite flowers-what beauty seeing so many. I'm wondering if you'll get a close up view of the Pro-Am.
    Enjoy your time.

  6. Isn't it amazing how they grow out of rock? True hardiness!

  8. We love Columbines, especially wild and scattered across a high altitude meadow! So very lovely.

  9. You have the most stunning wild flowers!

  10. Lovely! I Think we have them here too but they bloom early summer

  11. I love columbine, I would have been in heaven there.

  12. Aaaaaah, heavenly! I was just in Crested Butte on Tuesday for the race, but the flower we saw most of was fields and fields and fields of daisies. Not as picturesque as columbine, but in some areas, they were so thick, it looked like snow!

  13. One of the first wildflowers I learned as a child, and still each one is every bit as magical!
