Fall flower garden

Fall flower garden

Growing along the upper slopes of Spring Creek canyon near its source just below Bighole Peak, planted and tended only by Mother Nature.


  1. Mom Nature is indeed my favourite gardener of them all. Breathtakingly beautiful!

  2. I gaze upon Her gardens with a reverence reserved just for them.

  4. It’s always delightful to come to a opening in the forest and discover one of these gardens.

  5. I wonder why we often think we can “improve” on Mother Nature,… it doesn’t get any better than these shots, … so colorful and beautiful.

  8. Cedar,

    One thing I also like about Nature’s gardens here is the country surrounding them: this garden is high enough that you can see 40 – 50 miles of forest.

  9. I like the colors too, Bernie, especially the way the gardens are usually surrounded in multiple shades of green.

  10. Silken,

    There’s certainly reasons why that arrangement happened and I wish I knew enough to recognize them.
