I found this beautiful wildflower in the field next to the railroad tracks in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA). I don’t know the name of it, but it’s common around here, growing wild in the valley and in the mountains. It has even encrouched on a few gardens, which would probably classify it as a weed. The Rocky Mountains are in the background.
I’m uploading this for the Flowers with a View challenge in the All American Seasons group.
