Wow! It’s For Me!

Hello everyone on this very beautiful Monday!  I got a very nice surprise today when I discovered that my friend Ross had dedicated a post to me!  She and her family live in Italy, which I am told is another nice warm place.  Right now Ross and her family are on vacation in a cool place.  I’m not really sure why, but apparently they are enjoying it.  We are all different.  Anyway, I got permission to share her post with you all right here.  Thank you so much Ross for this great post!  Please everyone, check out her blog!  The following post is hers and copied from her blog:

For my friend Steve from Canada

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.

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.

    • Yes, that’s true, some will only grow in colder places so they are similar or even the same in different places around the world where the climate is the same. Have a great day!

  3. It’s delightful to see flowers that grow in other countries and what a nice gesture by your fellow blogger to share. I have a fellow blogger from Norway that is a photographer and I have shared many of his amazing photos on my blog. Give Muffin a hug. ☕️

  4. Thanks very very much Steve and thanks to all your kind followers! I really appreciated all your compliments, thank you so much! I really liked to see that the same types of flowers grow in similar but so distant places in the world. It’s a bit like saying hey, we’re far apart but we’re all the same. Really wonderful! The idea for this post came walking, seeing those flowers I thought of Steve and I thought he would like to see them. I never thought I had so much appreciation. Thanks again to everyone☺️
