    1. Thanks, Rose. You've been there but always in winter if I'm not mistaken. You need to go at another time of the year.

  2. Ron, we're flower soulmates! I found your blog trying to identify a paintbrush (decided it's hispidus, based on your blog). I've been to Manito Park in full bloom, and it's incredible. I've had a great time enjoying your gorgeous photos, on this post and many others. Here's where I hang out: www.thesouloftheearth.com.

    1. Nice to meet you, Betsey, and glad you found my blog. I looked up your site and read some of your posts (must go back) and it certainly looks like we share the same interest in flowers, especially wildflowers and in all the beauty of this great world we live in. I tried to comment on one of your posts, however, and failed.

    2. Thanks, Ron. I don't know what happened to your comment. I do have to approve first comments, but I don't see it anywhere. In any event, it's a pleasure to be hunting wildflowers with you. I'm heading to the prairies this year.

    3. I'll try again to leave a comment, Betsey, but last time it wouldn't post. We're headed for Australia this summer but will probably also make it up to the Canadian Rockies and the Alberta prairies.
