Elizabeth Joy has asked that once per week we post wildflowers from our area and tell what we know about them. I have looked through my photos and I don't seem to have pictures of wildflowers from my area. I know I used to take them with a regular camera but I guess I haven't taken many with my digital. There are a few in my garden that I have taken with my digital. This suggestion has urged me to look through the many pictures I have taken while on vacation. I thought I might show a few of those.We were at Pawnee Grasslands in Colorado looking for McCowan's Longspur and Mountain Plovers. Well, I can't help but notice the wildflowers here. It is an unforgiving terrain. Wide open, wind-swept spaces. I was shocked to see Cleome growing along the edges of a road. It went on for miles. It appeared that someone seeded along the edges of this road but surely not. In the above picture you can see one of the furry creatures of this habitat...Jack Rabbit. Are rabbits everywhere?? The only other thing I recognized in this area was some kind of Thistle.
