Juniper and Blazing star...

I have been waiting. I had no idea what spring in Colorado was going to offer in terms of flowers and foliage. The mountain has turned green...who knew??? The evergreens are plenteous. I can just hear Bob Ross saying, 'Put a tree here, it's a happy tree, maybe in our world there lives another happy little tree over there..'. There are alot of purple flowers, Iris, Larkspur, Juniper, Blazing Star. I had 1 Columbine perennial in Rhode Island, but it is the state flower of Colorado, so I am seeing many more variations...very pretty, very delicate. Lilac bushes and trees are everywhere and for the most part have come and gone, but we enjoyed bringing some cuttings in the house for it's beauty and unmistakable fragrance. It is only mid-spring. We are off to a good start!!
