A little evanescent froth for these dry mountains: the blooms on these shrubs are dramatic while they last, but they don’t last long.

Holodiscus dumosus: a bush that knows how to play with light.

    Have enjoyed your daily flower blog this month. Been copying and pasting images and sending to my daughter in law, educating her on the “weeds” of Colorado.( Otherwise called wildflowers. ) Thanks for your photos and research. It’s been most interesting.

      Norma, I was hoping to share the wealth, but I’s so glad you’re finding the info useful enough to share. I’m doing my best on identifications, but it’s a wild universe–the plants themselves don’t always show the characteristics they’re “supposed” to, and classification is a fluid thing. Stay tuned for more on “weeds”!
