Agrigirl’s Blog of Alpine Flora

Our summer travels took us into amazing floral terrain of the Swiss Alps. Each step was a photo opportunity causing for a slow but richly rewarding hike. I have the names of some but would love for readers to add their knowledge about names and medicinal values.IMG_1629

  1. Beautiful. A good place to load pictures and get an identification is http://www.mistersmartyplants.com. They also like help identifying flowers posted by others.

  3. Hi Tammy, I regret that I know so little about wildflowers and their different healing properties. However, I enjoyed a little detour from my daily travail to wander through your pretty gallery of Alpine flora. What an amazing hike that was!

    • It’s got a magical quality, doesn’t it? You know, I thought some of the photos were really nice and then I went online and looked at some professional photos in an attempt to identify the ones that I didn’t know. Boy, do I have much to learn about taking pictures!

  14. Amazing. Wish I had a way to take my camera with me on adventures, and to make sure it doesn’t break or get stolen!

    On my book wishlist is a book of North American plants and their medicinal properties. Maybe one day I’ll get to the point where I can spot out a flower and tell you what healing properties its leaves have, but until then, I’ll just end with “my, what pretty flowers there are in the world” :)

    • Yes, there are so many pretty ones. I love them and love to know their names. My next hope is to learn to forage.

  18. Such a joy to find our Alpine flowers on your blog, Tammy. And to know you loved them as much as I do. I tried to comment on some of them but could do better with my books about flowers that stayed up in the chalet, precisely !

    • oh yes, I wish I had one of those books now. I’ve been surprised at how little I’ve been able to find online.
