I have always loved those Butter and Eggs wildflowers, also known as Toadflax,  in Estes Park! You can see them everywhere and they are so colorful. They have the same colors as butter and eggs, thus they got their name.

Only to find out a few years later that they are an invasive plant from Europe that blooms from June through September on rangelands and roadsides. I photographed this one down by Lake Estes.

I still think they are a very pretty “invasive” wildflower. What do you think?

    Oh,The light! , making the gorgeous photo three dimensional causing these lovely beauties to pop right out of the picture.

    I cannot begin to tell you how many of these I pulled from my yard last summer. I wonder if I made a dent in them. Only next summer will tell. They sure are pretty, but its true they are invasive. I wish the flowers I planted would grow like them!
