A Bouquet of Flowers

Flowers.

A whole lot! Everywhere! I spent the morning reading a book detailing the flora of the Cordillera Blanca.

I think I did pretty well flower spotting! (Click the name of the flower to see an image! Not my images — thank you internet!)

Werneria Nubigena

Paranephelius Uniflorus

Bidens Andicola

Castilleja Sp.

Lupinus Sp.

Stipa Ichu

Cortaderia Nitida

Distichia Muscoides

Polylepsis Sp. (this is the highest occurring tree in the world; grows at altitudes of up to 14,800feet or more. There are four different species of this tree in Huascaran National Park).

Pretty!
