Wyoming Wildflowers

1 Jul

As my birthday gift, my incredibly busy farmer husband took an afternoon off to take Ella and I for a drive. We drove up to Esterbrook (a little community of summer cabins) and back around Laramie Peak. It was beautiful and we even found a little spot to have a picnic by a creek. It made me nostalgic for the summers I spent at my Grandpa’s cabin in the high elevations of southern Colorado.

Much to my delight, the wildflowers were blooming away! My mom gave me the book “Wildflowers of Wyoming” by Diantha and Jack States two years ago for my birthday and I finally put it to good use. This book is so great for a novice because it has a color guide in the front. I did my best to identify these flowers, but if anyone has more knowledge and sees that I’ve make a mistake (or has a more specific identification) feel free to comment and help us all learn!

And one more thing. Before any of you go teasing me about these being “weeds” not “flowers”, I get it. I’m a rancher’s granddaughter. Grandpa Jim would tell me that locoweed is a dangerous plant, not a pretty flower. But, my definition (as taught to me by my agroecology professor, Dr. Wilson) is “a plant out of place.” And these plants were right where I needed them to be to lift my spirits…so that’s no weed.
