The wildflowers are in full bloom in Colorado Springs! Some of the best viewing is just to the north of Colorado Springs, in the Black Forest area. These pics were taken at Black Forest Regional Park (close to the Cathedral Pines neighborhood, in which we have a house for sale, by the way!)
We were just in the mountains last week (Cripple Creek, Woodland Park area) and I didn’t see a lot of flowers blooming – yet, anyway. But, much of the Black Forest is a sea of purple, with some pinks, reds, oranges, and yellows mixed in.
The Meridian Ranch neighborhood in Falcon has some beautiful wildflowers and native grasses in the neighborhood landscaping. They’re planted in the center median along the main drives and different varieties bloom all summer long. They’re not native, but they are certainly beautiful!
