Summer wildflowers abound in Colorado. Some of the flowers are the same as we see in southern Arizona, but ours burn out by the beginning of May, since we are so much hotter, while the ones in Colorado are at their best in summer and into the fall.
This is a Campanula routundiforia (Mountain Harebell). It grows in the mountains (shocker!) not the desert where I live.
I’m not a purple lover, but I do like the combination of the lavender and the yellow-green in the background of this photograph.
