Silvery lupine brightening the Colorado high country!
Lupinus argenteus is a member of the pea family (fabaceae) native to western North America, and like most lupine species, vary greatly in size, hairiness, height, and flower color. Lupines also hybridize quite easily which adds to the variation and makes exact identification difficult.
It’s flowers quickly bloom upwards from a hairy spike (as seen in photo 5) into a showy stalk of purple, navy or white flowers. After a long flowering period, flowers age and fade, and are replaced by the fruits, which are green seed pods (photos 6/7/8) that resemble a fuzzy snap pea.

Lupine, perfectly lit by golden morning light. You can see the remnants of a burn a little more than a decade ago in the background, but the understory seems to demonstrate a pretty healthy recovery.

#sweet peas flowering year on year and they get better and taller #peafamily #flower

There's a point, when you're hiking up to alpine ridges, when it is as though a switch flipped: the plants are low to the ground, growing in scattered cushions their leaves blueish and tiny. That's when you go from robust 18" tall subalpine lupine to these little pincushions. The alpine wildflowers (and subalpine) are POPPING right now on Wy'East.

I had no idea there were so many kinds of vetch in Minnesota. I think this is field milkvetch. Mystery remains intact.

"Kissing's out of fashion when the gorse is out of blossom", a british saying referencing the plant being in blossom pretty much all year round. Gorse is a spikey shrub with yellow flowers found through western Europe and northern Africa. A part of the pea family, they are well suited to growing in dry soil. Gorse is mentioned in A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh story when he falls out of a tree into the spiky bush.
