Kylee shared that her true plant passion, if she had to choose one, would be wildflowers. Always energetic, her passion was palpable as we discovered each new bloom. She has walked these wild areas countless times, but on this day we found two species she'd never seen before (Anemone canadensis and Verbascum blattaria). One of the most satisfying parts of spending time with "plant people" is sharing their enthusiasm when they first encounter a new plant. On this day, the wildflowers were amazing, but the camaraderie was even better.
Here's a sampling of what we found.
|Hesperis matronalis (Dame's rocket)|
|Anemone canadensis (Canada Anemone)|
|Verbascum blattaria (Moth Mullein)|
|Tragopogon dubius (Western Salsify)|
