We discovered this charming Indian paintbrush the other day in the hills. This particular version is pink, but others are tinted red, orange, or peach. Even though the Indian paintbrush is Wyoming’s state flower, it’s not all that common and therefore always a delight to find. This flower looks particularly state-appropriate nestled against its host (Indian paintbrush are parasitic), a Wyoming big sagebrush.
“Walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them….If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don't you think He'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?” –Words of Jesus, MATTHEW 6: 28-30
