Well it is Spring but they are predicting rain and possible snow starting Wednesday night and into Friday. We will take the moisture but not to excited about the cold temperatures. Thought I would post and image of one of Colorado’s Columbines before the cold gets it.

The Rocky Mountain Columbine Columbines bloom in pastel shades of blue, violet, red, yellow and white. There are 70 species of columbines in the world and about 1/3 are native to North America. Colorado specifies the white and lavender Rocky Mt. Columbine which has blue-violet petals and spurs, a white cup and yellow center. Blue is a symbol of the sky, white represents snow, and yellow symbolizes Colorado’s gold mining history. It was designated the official state flower of Colorado in 1899 after winning the vote of Colorado’s school children. I was way too young to vote but I would have voted for it. 🙂
