Welcome to this sharing of wildflower identification, a hobby offering deep enrichment of our lives. The arrangement of blooms by color has been of great assistance to us, as amateur hobbyists, in the identification of wildflowers. This is the organizational basis of the galleries. Please feel free to eMail your feedback, suggestions, corrections, or questions. It is our pleasure to share our photographs in the hope that wildflower identification may spark your interest and enhance your joy in nature, as it so richly has done for us.

The western region of the United States encompasses a huge area. Many of the plants represented in this website have been sighted in Oregon and Washington. In some cases there may be blooms shown here from Canada. These areas have been explored by us exclusively to date simply based on proximity. In 2008 we will be presenting specimens from Colorado, Wyoming and adjacent states since we now live in this area. However, our interest extends much farther! The regions map here represents the area we are interested in learning and sharing about today, and in the future.
