Flower Friday - It is dry but the flowers persist!

I am astounded by our wildflowers this year. It barely snowed last winter, leaving us far behind on moisture, as demonstrated by the huge wildfires burning in our state. To top it off, it has barely rained this spring and summer. Yet, we have wildflowers. I am thankful.

Shyla says hello from a meadow with yellow flowers!

The Lady Bugs love those yellow flowers.

My favorites, the Columbines, are still blooming. They make me grin.

A few Wallflowers and Bluebells are still blooming, if you look in the right places.

We are so thankful that the flowers have managed to bloom and bloom despite the dryness. Shyla is reveling in galloping through fields of wildflowers!
Thanks to the gang at LLB for hosting the Flower Friday blog hop!
