Wonderful blog healerwitch, such a variety of wildflowers. Is the photo no.5 (unknown flower) Larkspur (Delphinium) ? The flower of Hedge Bindweed is a real beauty isn't it, but you wouldn't want it in your garden. :-)

yes i think the lovely blue is a delphinium. if it is annual then it is called a larkspur.
gorgous plants. we also get the pink & white bindweed. it reminds me of a two tone Mr Whippy icecream.

It must be wonderful to see so many wild flowers growing near by

14 Feb, 2010 is not really that way there in the desert of Colorado...In this blog is all the flowers I saw in an entire day of looking for them...they are usually well blended, and you do not notice many of them until you are just about on top of them!
