Mountain Wildflowers

 Still going through my pictures, here are a couple wild flower shots.  I think the one above is from back in the 1980's when I had a Polaroid. Although I try to learn new wildflowers every year, my memory fails me here and I can't tell you for sure any but the blue lupine and the darker blue larkspur. 
I'm not sure on this one, it might be one Cathy took and gave me.  Isn't this a gorgeous conglomeration?  Again, I think we can see forget-me-nots, prairie smoke and lupine.  If you blow it up you can see a little lavender colored shooting star about midway down on the left.  I'm not sure of the red ones in the foreground.  There must be 15 different varieties of flowers in this picture!   Diane

These are beautiful images....I love wild flowers I have tried and tried to get them to come up in the yard but I guess you need top soil!

So pretty! I wish anything wild would grow here. We have dust again. Ugh! I'm off to bed. It's been a very busy week. Take care! Tammy
