This post is for my friend Steve who lives in Canada. He always posts beautiful photos of His Land and tells stories, memories, nature walks, daily meetings with the local wildlife and much more. Also He shows a lot of flowers and he knows the name of all of them. If you want to take a look at his site, you can find him at stevescountry.com . He is a person with great sensitivity and is Also very funny.
So, Steve, this is for you.
The premise That I do not know nothing about flowers.
Today, while I was hiking at 2400 meters, I saw some beautiful flowers That I would like you to see. The place is called Lazaun Alp and it is located in the Italian Alps on the border with the Austrian ones.
The first flowers That struck me were near a tiny alpine lake. I’ve never seen anything like this in my whole life. Below you will find some shots.
Most of the ground is covered by innumerable juniper plants.
And in the middle of all this wonder somentimes there are some little flowers. Here you are other shots.
I hope you enjoyed my selection of flowers. Have a nice Monday!
Let me add in, these bell flowers look like our harebells or perhaps the bellflower. The white fluffy ones at the top I have seen here in different places and never knew what they were but today I identified them as cottongrass. This is a type of grass that grows in wet areas from Alaska, through Canada, Europe and northern Asia. I really enjoyed getting this look at some flowers from Italy and seeing some the same as what we have here. Thank you so much Ross!
I hope everyone has enjoyed this look at wildflowers from Italy today. I hope you all enjoy your week and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
