Flowers at Lake Louise

Have your wondered what flowers grow in the mountains? Today is my 2nd segment of my trip to Lake Louise. First we are going to see some wild flowers....
(all photos are courtesy of Dr. John, Stephanie and David)
We saw these flowers along the paths of our hike to the mountains. The bees were busy at work! 
Next we are visiting the grounds and landscapes at the Chateau Lake Louise
The poppy flowers had inspired my sista/friend Lin  Sending Hugs.  She created three gorgeous cards! Please check them out! Love how it inspired Lin!
 The grounds near the Chateau were kept in immaculate and beautiful condition. 


Enjoy your day! Hope it's full of beautiful colors !

Love the photos Virginia!! I have to confess though, I live in the mountains in BC, and almost all of the flowers grow here. We're quite late though, compared to Lake Louise. Our Wild Roses just bloomed in July, rather than mid May - mid June.

Beautiful photos, Virginia!
