“Indian Paintbrush”

“The Paintbrush evoked the Native American legend of a young brave who tried to paint the sunset with his warpaints. Frustrated that he could not match the brilliance of nature, he ask for guidance from the Great Spirit. The Great Spirit gave him paintbrushes laden with the colors he so desired. With these, he painted his masterpiece and left the spent brushes in fields across the landscape. These brushes sprouted the flowers we now so wonderfully love!”

The above is a quote from the “Flowers of Northwest” website.

    I love the brilliant color and I thank you for the legend of the paint brush, one I hadn’t yet read. Judy
