Every state in this amazing nation has its own beauty.
Where I live currently, we have an interesting mix of mountain forest and high desert plants.
While we have huge 100 year old Ponderosa Pines, we also have cacti and Yucca.
In the Summer and Fall there are wildflowers everywhere.
This past week I took some pictures of the flowering cacti and a bouquet I picked of my Iris mixed with some of the wildflowers.
I just thought I'd share!
Also, more of the local wildflowers:
Mountain Bluebells and Lupine, Indian Paintbrush and Yucca
Aren't they beautiful?
