Colorado Flowers

All these plants are found it 7,000 to 11,000 ft above sea level.

This is a bed my our friends house,I really liked the brick wall. Most of the home gardens contained these types of plants
A garden to attract hummingbirds and butterflies
These are flower found at 10,000 ft. In a area of the Gold Mines.
I believe these are

Berlandiera lyrata Benth.
