Flowers again

I want to finish the third of this series of flower photos. I liked these guys a lot.

These flowers were near my campsite in the Bighorn Mountains, not far from a melting snowbank. While the ground looks dry it’s very wet just below the surface and this is some very early variety of wildflower. If you like wildflowers just after the snow melts is the ideal time. Yes, some wildflowers bloom later but most want to come up as soon as it’s warm enough while there are also lots of pollinators around and get their seeds back in the ground.

I have little skill in identifying plants or flowers but I can at least tell them apart and it constantly amazes me, how in a small patch of ground, how many varieties can be present. Nature certainly is diverse. I do like managed human gardens but nature is still the best with its totally haphazard planning yet amazing resilience.
