I like them all, especially sauteed with these lovely onions and served over a rare steak.

Yes they are pretty plants, but they are domestic garden flowers, not wildflowers.  Those mountains are the tetons in Wyoming.  We are working with the native flowers of that area, so I have some familiarity.

Stinging nettle



The surface of a stinging nettle leaf. The large stinging hairs are hollow tubes with walls of silica making them into tiny glass needles. The bulb at the base of each hair contains the stinging liquid, which includes formic acid, histamine, acetylcholine and 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). The tips of the glassy hairs are very easily broken when brushed, leaving a sharp point, which can pierce the skin to deliver the sting.

Here is an interesting shot. This is looking up the centre of a felled spruce. The core of the tree has become hollow through rot, but only the softer stem-wood has rotted away, leaving the more dense branch-wood behind.

Here is another root one - this is a larch and the roots have become exposed after the soil has gradually eroded away.

Would that be a label with the latin name on it at the front of the pot?

Nope, it's latin, and here are some more pictures of cacti from the Mammillaria family.
