Flower Power

We saw these and many more flowers on our Mt. Lemmon walk. All were ultimately identified using Frank Rose's book Mountain Wildflowers of Southern Arizona.

Red Monkeyflower (Mimulus cardinalis) (136 in Rose) 

Golden Columbine (Aquilegia chrysantha) (153) 

New Mexico Raspberry (Rubus neomexicanus) (162) 

Bearded Penstemon (Penstemon barbatus) (140)

Peavine (Lathyrus graminifolius) (100)
The flower pictured in Rose is much pinker, 
leaves wider than the examples we saw. 
Like all living things, there are variations within species. 

(This wasn't really a week of Mt. Lemmon, so I reserve the right to bring you more from the heights later this year.)
