June 2011 Colorado Columbine Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendar

June 2011 free destop wallpaper calendar of blue Colorado columbineColorado columbine with its sky-blue petals and white centers is one of my favorite flowers. The fact that this wildflower grows quite well here in the extreme temperatures of the northern Colorado Rockies amazes me. It is so delicate looking but so tough! Hummingbirds love the pretty blossoms too making it a great addition for your hummingbird garden. There are lots of hybrids out there in many colors of red, yellow, blue, white, pink and purple, as well as combinations of those colors.

This photograph is a wild columbine that I happened upon hiking on a trail in my area. I was amazed at its perfection and beauty among the tangle of green "weeds." Hope you enjoy it as your June 2011 calendar.
