Wildflowers

My near constant companion last week was a book describing Wildflowers of Montana-- a handy little guide, and loads of fun. Well, it was for me, anyway. I'm not certain those around me were so enthused.



My husband patiently endured countless stops while I looked up some new bush or flower as we wandered around.

This one is Orange Hawkweed...






... and this is Foamflower.

Overall, I identified better than two dozen wildflower species...





...and another 7 native shrubs, like this Mock Orange.


I am such a geek.

Oh, of course not! Pancake art is a whole 'nother realm. I would not presume to even attempt it!

My husband steams ahead on the trail when I try to botanize. The best compromise is for him to complete a loop while I try to figure out which **** yellow composite I am trying to identify.

Nice pictures BTW.
