Summer wildflowers on Friday

Summer in Colorado is the best - flowers and mountains. What else could we want? Dogs!

Most places, the yellow flowers still dominate but a few purples are invading them. This purple and yellow aster is one of our last wildflowers of the summer so I don't want to see too many of them yet.

Despite the fact that they are a sign of impending autumn, I still love them.

Up high, I saw one of my absolute favorite colored Indian Paintbrushes. I adore its brilliance.

As summer wears onward, Shyla and I seek out the patches of remaining flowers for our playgrounds. I adore wildflowers and summer!
Happy Flower Friday!


  1. Such beautiful flowers! We love your happy smile, Shyla☺

  2. I love dogs and flowers and if I had to choose would choose dogs, but together is perfect

  3. Such pretty flowers and perfect for Flower Friday.

  6. The asters are so vibrant and pretty. They must really stand out in a field of green.

    Happy weekend.

  8. Such beauty!! It is wonderful to see Shyla(and you) frolicking through the fields!!

  9. When I took Piper out early this week, I saw many Joe Pye weed and Boneset flowers - to me, those two always signal a turning point from the peak of summer. Which is odd, because so MUCH of summer didn't seem to happen at all, yet! Oh well. It will be a while - I hope - before the asters appear. Those purple asters says "Autumn" to me.

  10. I can feel summer winding down already. :(
