I was so happy to see the blooms of paint brush and Western wood lilies decorate the sides of the highway when I was travelling through the mountains. I was inspired to buy a book on shrubs and flowers when I reached Nordegg and was I ever overwhelmed by the varieties! It is hard to determine which is which-so much information but  I will try to keep it simple. I share with you the colours of the landscape with those blooms that  I have identified as well as the rest of the “pretty flowers”. I am sorry about the blurriness of the first one but curious about what this is.

  3. All lovely, but that fourth one in particular… cracks right through the screen and into my living room in a burst of color.

    • Thanks Emily, found out it is called Sisyrinchium montanum or Mountain Blue-eyed grass.

  7. Great to find another Alberta wildflower lover! Looks like you have ID’d most of your lovely images and I think I can help you with the last one. From what I can see of it, I think it is a Wild White, or Richardson’s Geranium (Geranium richardsonii). If you took more pictures of it – leaves, etc., you should be able to confirm it.

    • Thank you Cindy. I think it is the wild white geranium but I am starting to pay more attention to the leaves because that is the first identifying factor in the guide book. I am happy for your comments and that you stopped to check the blog.
