I love photos of wildflowers, especially ones as bright and colorful as these! I think these cluster flowers are interesting, the way they bloom. And we can really tell this is the mountains here...it's really steep! May, I hope you don't easily lose your balance and go rolling down the hill...but I shouldn't worry, you are Swiss!

I love them too, Ryan. Here in the hills and on this height we still have quite a few. And you're right, you shouldn't worry about my balance, I am a capricorn and used to slopes. Thank you! :-)

Greetings, May

You have Fireweed there, too!

A very nice photo of one of my favorite plants.

Thank you Larry! I like this plant also very much! This one was on about 1000 m above sea level.

As a walker with a camera at times I wish I had more patience to linger. But when you have access to pictures like this I am not so unhappy.

In England it is called Rosebay Willowherb and you may be interested in a conversation with Genot B and his picture here concerning this wild flower.

Thank you very much, Peter. I have seen them many times in England, as well as in in Scotland. This pretty flower is quite common in the region where I live.

Best greetings from Switzerland, May :)
