I guess last Saturday was a day for purple-type blooms! Here are 3 more different types of purple wildflowers in the wonderful Sandia Mountains (I just love to think of these mountains as "my" mountains!). The bloom above is a Spike Verbena. The bloom is pretty, and in this case, I was also taken by the leaves of the flower - I just love their shape and the texture this appears to give them!
This lovely little bloom is a Purple Geranium. I know, it looks more pink than purple, but there you have it! It really is a delicate little flower, and I love the contrast of the yellow stamens.
And, this last of the purple blooms from this walk is called Jacob's Ladder. If I remember correctly, the leaves of this bloom sort of creates the impression of a ladder. But, I could be misremembering! In any event, the mix of this shade of purple and green is one that I find quite relaxing and soothing.
And, this last bloom is a Rocky Mountain Townsend Daisy. I love the look of these petals, so perfect and precise! And, it looks like such a happy flower, doesn't it? But, then, I think that about most daisies!
