So it’s winter in the village in BUTTER OFF DEAD, but high summer right now. And I’d much rather share pictures of posies than snow piles!
Left: Arrowleaf Balsamroot, one of my favorite wildflowers. Other faves: Indian paintbrush and wild pink spirea, so brave it grows on the upper slopes of the Continental Divide, right behind our house.
Clematis “Etoile Violette.” We trained it up an old bamboo rake staked to the side of the garage.
Echinacea, aka cone flower. It’s spread like mad in our woodland garden and we love it!
