My First Wildflower Of The Season In Estes Park, CO!

As I was walking into town the other day I was looking for the elk. They are usually around and always so much fun to see. As I rounded the tall rocks on West Elkhorn Ave. I looked down and saw something that looked pinkish. I stopped and looked again.

Nestled in the rocks was my first wildflower of the season. It was so pretty and such a treat to see a wildflower in the end of March.

I came home and looked in my plant book to try to identify it. It wasn’t quite totally bloomed but it looks like a Wild Geranium to me. Maybe when it gets  little bigger, I’ll be able to see exactly what kind of flower it is. So, instead of always looking up, it’s time to start looking down when you take a walk or hike. You never know what you’ll find!

  1. You could be right…the leaves and petals just don’t look right to me for a pasque flower. Do you know what kind?
