It is finally summer in Colorado…well, maybe. Earlier this week we had a cold snap and it was back down into the 40’s we go. Seriously, I was wearing a sweater in late June. Global warming?… I’m just asking. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think pollution is a good thing. Alas, it is summer and the wildflowers are blooming once again in the high country. Summer here is short, but the wildflowers are diverse and stunning. One of my favorite wildflowers is the politically incorrect, but extremely vibrant, Indian Paintbrush. I am actually very surprised some overly politically correct movement hasn’t jumped on this cause and attempted to do away with this archaic name. Truth be told I would probably be for it, not because I think it should be called the Native American Paintbrush, which still sounds condescending to me, but because I really like its lesser known common name—the Prairie-Fire.
