interesting wildflower I saw today
I was taking a walk today around the park I usually go and saw a wildflower I've never seen there before. It smells really nice, too. So I picked a bloom and did some internet searching when I got home. Turns out it is Showy Milkweed. Ever seen it? It's very cool!
I also found a nice site giving info on various Colorado wild flowers and weeds: http://www.wildflowersofcolorado.com/. So many pretty wild flowers! I may try to find some to add to my garden, although I already see a few plants around my yard that I suspect are wild flower volunteers (columbine, aster, and penstemon). The aster was blooming when we moved in, but the penstemon showed up last year near the aster. The columbine showed up this year, but might have come in with another plant that was given to me. In any case, I am enjoying them :)
