Silky Locoweed

This white form of locoweed tends to bloom early. Most of it has set set seed in our area already, but those plants still flowering are popular.

Oxytropis sericea

Same bumblebee here (it worked over a cluster of plants quite thoroughly while I watched), in a picture that shows the sage-gray plant.

    Nice! This one is in full flower here at 9800 feet, and saw my first bumblebee just yesterday.

      Ah, the tide is still sweeping uphill, Jenny-Lynn. The locoweeds are positively voluptuous. I’m reasonably certain that bumblebee in the photo is the biggest one I’ve ever seen!
