Greetings one and all and welcome to my little blog where I share the joy of life. Life really is what you make it and attitude can change everything! It just so happens that flowers can change mine. So, today I am happily sharing the fabulous flowers of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
Our family recently returned from a glorious 2 weeks in the Denver and Breckenridge area. It is in this mountainous state that cool star filled nights ease gently into soft sunrises and sun drenched days and where flowers of all shapes, colors and sizes thrive. Streets filled with baskets of Petunias tumble out of their baskets.
Petunias just love these cool nights and lots of water too. I was in awe of their magnificent and rich hued blooms.
Well preserved Historical buildings line the downtown streets of Breckinridge and were gloriously framed by towering majestic mountains.
We spent one day in the town of Breckenridge and the rest of the time we hiked the various peaks and valleys where we were treated to magnificent waterfalls, gurgling streams, fresh air, blooms, sightings of Mountain Goat and snow capped mountains.
Mother Nature always provides the very best landscape.
Here we have a trio of purple. The Mountain Columbine and Lupine.
Some seasoned hikers informed us that the Wild Mountain Goat love to dine on Columbine!
There were many mountain peaks covered in snow and this is some of the rushing run-off.
Flashy yellow flowers dotted various paths and some of them grew in such precarious places.
Here are the Sulphur Flower, Heartleaf Arnica and Golden Banner.
Nature…the best place to be;
Where serenity meets imagination and when they collide everything becomes possible.
I am happy you dropped by today and I hope you’ll visit these other passionate flower lovers.
