I take my camera when I run the trails in Jefferson County, Colorado. I am always excited when I see a flower that is new to me.
- 2016 - Chicory, a noxious weed at Apex Park
- In 2015, my new finds were Sawsepal Penstemon, Tiny Trumpet and a member of the pea family that I think is some kind of Milkvetch.
- My new finds for 2014 included the Hookedspur Violet, Western Spiderwort and Western Blue Virginsbower.
- In 2013, I was very excited to see Pasqueflowers and Sugar Bowls. According to the websites I used to look up the family name, both flowers are members of the Buttercup family.
