The bright yellow woolly groundsel (Senecio canus), with its dusty grey-green leaves?
Or the white-pink clusters of buckwheat (Eriogonum ovalifolium)?
Perhaps I like looking up and watching the mountain bluebirds fluttering about, still as miraculously blue as they were earlier this spring?
Or the fragrant, fuzzy yarrow (Achillea millefolium), which is bursting into white blooms?
They're all lovely, and striking in their own unique ways. But the two that are most beautiful to me--the two that I simply can't decide between--are the fascinating bitterroots (Lewisia rediviva)--Montana's state flower!--
and the impossibly vivid purply-blue penstemon (Penstemon spp).
Most spectacular of all, however, is the way they all look together.
On Sunday the flowers were still going strong--so you still have time to get out and see them! Go! Now!
