Flower power

Stop and smell the pepsissewa.

I found a rather uncommon wildflower (Menzie's pepsissewa) on a hike yesterday and ID'd it on a new (to me) plant reference site.  If you don't already know about the site and the photographer's book(s), this is one to check out before or after your next foray into the wilds of Oregon or Washington.

It was a wonderful day.


The site:  pnwflowers.com

The book:  Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest
by Mark Turner and Phyllis Gustafson

The App:  Oregon Wildflowers 
Also one for Washington

Companion book:  Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest 
By Mark Turner and Ellen Kulhmann
