Wild Flowers


The wild flowers are starting bloom in western Wyoming. The first flowers to come out are the yellow blooms of arrowleaf balsamroot. Unfortunately, we do not have any on our property. Then come the dandelions. Now we are getting the more colorful blooms.

Yellow Salsify or Goat's Beard

On Sunday the lupines started followed by the Paintbrush.


Wild Rose

Last night we saw the first wild rose and today the garden is filled with yellow salsify and flax with a few dots of yarrow. We have a few wild geraniums (Bicknell's) and of course the lush green of the grasses and bushes.



And once in awhile, you get to see a butterfly!

It's a colorful time to be in the mountain west.
