It's so hard to pick a favorite wildflower. I just gave up, I love them all and I kinow you do too. This is a little one I taught myself this year. I've always thought of them as the Pasque Flower or, more commonly, the Crocus. They seem to be similar - they're both blue, they're both hairy. But the Crocus grows more like a lopsided tulip and has other characteristics that aren't like these at all.
Although I think of beautiful things and try to find the beauty to share on here I'm so distracted by the fires in our west. As I write this the AirForce Academy in Colorado Springs is threatened. It almost unbelievable. We need a downpour so bad. I continue to pray for all those people who're affected by this, both losing their homes, the firefighters and all the others involved. Diane
