MORE WILD FLOWERS AND OTHER SUCH STUFF
On Tuesday J and I went up above Hyalite Reservoir (seen above) and got the photos I posted Tuesday afternoon and these.
It is pretty special to have a job where I can take off the time to go do things with this young man – he’s pretty special too!
Thimble Berry bushes are wonderful, but they always remind me that Andy wants his ashes spread among some specific thimble berries – I’m hoping for a lot of years before I have to go on that particular hike!
I love columbine, and it was doing well this week. I grow it in the garden, but somehow the wild ones are just a little bit more special.
I probably got a bit carried away taking photos of it.
This one is my favorite – I love the sweet pink in there. I think my mom had this particular variety in a garden once.
I am always amazed at how hairy flowers can be! Wish I had a macro lens so I could really highlight that feature on flowers like this one.
A macro lens would have helped with this one too – get that moth really up close!
And this is another variety of those tiny little flowers that grow on the cliffs beside a water fall – it is about 1.5 inches tall, and very beautiful!
Just so you know it wasn’t all fun and games with the cameras, here you can see that we did some pretty vigorous up and downs to get to all these beautiful pieces of God’s creation.
