Summer Flowers in Full Bloom

The lupines you see on the left are just a small sample of all the flowers in bloom in and around Breckenridge.

The later part of July is always the height of the flower season in Summit county. You can't go anywhere without an exclamation of how beautiful they are. Downtown, into the woods and high up on a mountain - everywhere they are in bloom.

Our climate contributes to the intense colors many of the flowers have - the cool nights (usually in the 40s) and our daytime highs in the mid-seventies - are the perfect blend of weather for cool-loving flowers of all types.

This group of lupines is in my back yard.
