A Colorado Mid-Summer Dream

The land is once again dehydrated, dry, and drought. The air torrid and dust stricken. And the fire danger heightened back to extreme. Parts of Colorado are still ablaze and from the predictions of my weather app we are still quite a few days out from a small, small chance of rain. However, the hearty alpine wildflowers continue to bloom enlivening the thirsty landscape. Fields are full of alpine sunnies, mules ear, lupines, wild rose, purple aster, scarlet gilia, paintbrushes and those I’m not as well acquainted with and cannot yet call by name. They sway in the mid-summer winds as if they are waving to onlookers with warm welcome. You can almost hear them sing “Lively Up Yourself” by Bob Marley. It’s whimsical and completely joy inducing.

If flowers were blessings, good vibes or otherwise we’d all have a lot of counting to do. Are you counting?

I hope you’re all enjoying the last day of June 2018! And I hope you enjoyed this series of Colorado’s wildflowers! 

Thank you all for joining me here and until next time,
