It's Summertime! Celebrate with Flowers

Wishing everyone a happy, bright, sunshiny week from the Wildflower Capital of Colorado, Crested Butte.
 It's Summertime! Let's celebrate with Flowers.

This delightfully small ski town which is covered in a blanket of white for many months of the year is experiencing an explosion of color in shades of pink, purple, orange and yellow this summer.  Last week was the Wildflower Festival and the flowers were peaking on the mountainsides and trails, but everywhere you look there are gardens, flower boxes and hanging baskets bursting with gorgeous colorful flowers.

Everyone gets into the spirit of summertime here and plants to their hearts content or purchases the most beautiful flowers available to display in their yards and porches. Shops, galleries, offices and restaurants display hugh hanging baskets which must be watered each day in their entrances and the town provides planters and flower boxes which line the main street, Elk Avenue in vibrant summer blossoms.

Although the growing season is short here, usually about 90 days this flower frenzy is a feast for the eyes and fills your heart and soul with gratitude for such beauty. 

Enjoy the flowers and the inspired by nature ~ Botanical Style flower bracelets which can be found on my website or if sold, by special request. Keep checking back for more flower inspired jewelry this summer.
Remember to stay on touch on facebook and twitter too!
Happy Summer!
