    Love this flower! Boulder County has seeded it along the roads outside of town so we have some near our driveway. The indigo really stands out in the green grass.

    These have all been such a delight so far!

    I love how these float on thin stalks, and this year seem more prone to falling over. Great posts, thanks.

    Kayann, I’m a total sucker for that blue. I’ve been moving seeds around and we now have a few colonies expanding closer to the house. I absolutely love how this plant looks in the grass, but haven’t figured out how to capture that in a photo.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the show, Pat!

    Just about everything about the blue flax is appealing, isn’t it? They’ve got color, floatiness, PLUS a fleeting nature that reminds you to appreciate. I even like the flecks of blue on the ground, after the petals have withered and fallen.

  7. This is also one of my favorites, Andrea. A few years ago I sprinkled wildflower seeds across the yard and these really took off. It never ceases to amaze me that they look done in the evening, only to experience a resurgence the next morning.

    A lesson in the ephemeral, aren’t they, Tanja? I’m glad the plants keep flowering for such a long time, even if the individual flowers only last a day.
