This Dreamy Duskywing butterfly was so pretty in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer.
It’s not a colorful butterfly, but so pretty in its own coloring.
Have you ever seen one?
I think the Pearly Everlasting wildflower is one of the prettiest of the wildflowers in Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. When it starts to bud, it looks just like a shiny, white pearl. And then as it blossoms, the petals come out and it looks like a bouquet of pretty, little, delicate white wildflowers.
Have you ever seen a Pearly Everlasting wildflower?
I have only seen Mountain Death Camas wildflowers twice in Rocky Mountain National Park and both times up on the tundra.
I looked up on the internet why they are called Mountain Death Camas and it is because they are poisonous to both humans and wildlife, thus their name. Guess I’ll stay away from them!
Congratulations to Cynthia, the owner of Bear Necessities, a retail shop in Estes Park, for winning the America in Bloom Award. This is a citation for “quality, beauty and care of property.” The flowers outside of her shop are just exquisite!
It is always such a treat to walk around town in the summer and see all the beautiful flower gardens and the many planters on the street corners.
At Bear Necessities, they are especially gorgeous! What vibrant colors! Congratulations, Cynthia!
If you walk by Bear Necessities and Cubs near Bond Park in downtown Estes Park, be sure to stop by and say hi.
