At high elevation, the wildflowers all bloom at the same time. Shyla and I enjoy them in the National Forest every day at this time of year. She loves running through Golden Banner, a meadow flower, at this time of year.
When we look at the "lower story" of that meadow, we see these gems. I love their color and beauty.
In the "upper story", the chokecherry blossoms are incredible! They get pollinated within days of blooming. By late summer, each flower will be a berry that bears adore! The bears eat them so quickly that we rarely get to see the berries themselves!
In the wet parts of the meadows, the Shooting Stars are glorious. They are low to the ground in the green grass.
No flower post at this time of year would be complete without my favorite - the Colorado Columbine.
I hope that you enjoyed our tour of a few of our current wildflowers.
It's nirvana at our elevation right now!
