Wildflowers in Forbes Park
We were told that the wildflowers in the park this year were more abundant and beautiful than in the past seven or eight years, probably due to the large snowfall this past winter and abundant rain in the early spring. Most of these photos were taken right on our lot and the varieties seemed to change daily. We purchased a great little book on wildflowers (Wildflowers of Colorado Field Guide) at the Narrow Gauge Newsstand in Alamosa and had fun trying to identify the various species. The Alpine Columbine and Rocky Mountain Iris were especially beautiful.
