  4. I’m with ya! I, too, love seeing Summer’s flowers in all their glory. This was a beautiful post and that opening shot with the butterfly is especially so.

    • Thank you John. I do love the mountain wildflowers. However, the Midwest is calling and I just may have to spend some time next summer in IL, MI and WI. Nothing like picking my own blueberries and taking in the lush vegetation of the Midwest πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Linda and yes I’m enjoying the new camera but there’s a story behind that LOL. As much as I’m dying to get up to the Tetons and Yellowstone, I’m very much enjoying our relaxed pace here in Denver. Aug 6 Logan flies in for a week and then Aug 15th we have a res in Rocky Mtn NP. Should be a fun month.

    • Thank you. Mountains and wildflowers – it doesn’t get much better. I’m savoring my mountain time that’s for sure. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

    • Thanks ML. I took that one a couple of years ago with my little waterproof point and shoot camera. We were camped at Steamboat Lake and it was raining on and off. It was just such a beautiful location I couldn’t sit in the RV. Walking in the light rain was fun πŸ™‚

  6. Beautiful pics…Right now the flowers here are very pretty too…we have had so much rain. I really do love the wildflowers of Texas, the Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush…and the desert cactus flowers are short lived but amazing too! Soooo many flowers , sooo little time!

    • It’s been raining almost every afternoon here along the Front Range making for a beautiful showing of wildflowers in the high country. Flowers always make me smile, that and a good margarita πŸ™‚

  7. Fantastic. I can NEVER get enough of seeing photos of or “up close and personal” flowers!

  8. Those are awesome photos! I really love the one with the butterfly! That was quite a capture. πŸ˜‰ Makes me want to immediately bail from the 100 degree heat we are presently having and head straight to the Rockies!

    • Just got back from Golden Gate Canyon SP and it was warm there as well… not 100 but already in the 80’s by 11:00 and climbing. We tried to go to Mt. Evans but closed due to a cycling event and it was quite chilly even at the base. I’ll be working on my State Park post soon. Do you ever use your first name in the blogosphere?

      • Sorry to just now be getting back to you! Kind of covered up here recently working on an insurance claim for our roof damage from hail, among other things. I will definitely be watching for your posts on the state park! We are hoping to get up there soon but not sure if it will work out… flying up for a long weekend. So many things to deal with here and hubs has to go out of country for two weeks in August now. I don’t plan to use my name on my blog but happy to share with you! — Denise

    • Thank you. There was a time I would’ve known the names of all these beauties having enjoyed perennial gardening during my Illinois days. Now? In my book, they’re known as the pink ones, the blue ones, the yellow ones, etc. LOL

    • Thank you Laurel. I’m practicing a little macro photography these days and some shots work while others not so much. I’ve embraced the delete button LOL. My intimate relationship with the delete button started during my Gulf Coast birding adventures πŸ™‚

  10. Beautiful flower photos, Ingrid! I love the butterfly in the opening shot:) The gorgeous resort we just left in Empire, MI has huge areas of wildflowers throughout. The sites are set up in a pinwheel fashion which is great for privacy and the wildflowers and grasses are allowed to grow naturally. They only mow around the edges. It is so nice to look out at all the flowers. I thought it was a clever idea. I guess it goes with the name Indigo Bluff:)

    • Thanks Pam. When Ashton and I visited MI, she could not get over the lush vegetation. She grew up mostly in Colorado thus she was intrigued with the dense green foliage. Sounds like you stayed at a beautiful resort.

  11. Such pretties!! Not sure if you do Instragram weekend hashtag contests…you’ve really got some ones that are dead ringers. Ps, ears burning? Just back from happy hour with Steve and Mona….such sweetness! They were just lovely and what travel knowledge. Good times!

  12. Wow! Ingrid these are some amazing photos. Of course you can guess that my top pick is the mountain shot. Wonderful with the road leading out.

    • Thanks Clay. Summer mountain wildflowers are the best and I’ll be going into the high country this weekend in search πŸ™‚
