Columbines are Blossoming

Columbines are one of the stars of the annual wildflower bloom in Buffalo River county. They are going strong in Lost Valley and elsewhere along creeks feeding into the Buffalo.  In Lost Valley the big bloom is by the Natural Bridge. They also border Eden Falls, but they are much easier to photograph at the Natural Bridge.

  1. Michael, a little know fact about those Columbines, My father Edgar Bland from Rogers planted the Colubine you see today on the Lost Valley Trail. For years in the 80's and 90's we would hike the trail twice per year and it buged him that there were no Columbines to be found. So over a 15 year period we brought plants and seeds from his house and got them started on the trail. Thanks for posting the photo's. My dad has passed on since then and he was always proud of the columbines at Lost Valley.
