Summer's finally here!

Penstemon strictus
After removing fallen trees, dead standing aspen and weeds the existing meadow offers a variety of native grasses. Due to grazing in the past, non-native grasses such as Smooth Brome and Timothy had taken hold in some of the disturbed areas along an old ranch road and irrigation ditch, choking out everything else. A combination of pulling and mowing has weakened them considerably and allowed the desirable grasses to fill in. Slipping in the wildflowers will add more color as these Penstemon's demonstrate.
