Wildflowers and Fire Danger

Wildflower and tourist season are in full-swing in Colorado.

I prefer the flowers to the tourists!

Our state is very dry from lack of spring moisture.

Wildflowers along water sources are surviving.


Forest wildflowers are slow to bloom and fast to wilt.

I work in my gardens  and hike the trails.

We watch for smoke plumes indicating fire.


Currently, 10 wildfires are burning in Colorado.

I pray for rain.

Nature's gardens are my one good thing today.
