Wildflowers are nature's vanity. Showing themselves every year with the wish to attract as many insects and animals as possible to show off their beauty. Each year is a delightful treasure hunt to find the most beautiful.
Musk thistle (Carduus nutans) along road near RedRock RV Park. This beautiful flower is considered an invasive weed in the west. This one was growing as a single stalk, one flower, very clean looking. July 31, 2011.
