Fermi, you must have bought seed of Gladiolus watermeyeri from Silverhill the same time I did. Is that the first time flowering for you?

A few more scenes from the other day.

Wrights Lake.



An autumn trail scene – the landscape in this scene is still fairly green considering it is mid-September. Generally many similar meadows in this area can be much drier this late in the season. Other meadows habitats are consistently dry - every season.



Agrostis scabra growing in another mountain meadow.



There are still many species in bloom – Solidago elongata and Anaphalis margaritacea.



Lower down the mountain, there are sheets of Lessingia leptoclada in bloom on Peavine Ridge. Here conditions are extremely dry and relatively hot.

Until the next time…

Vojtech Holubec and David Horak write in their excellent book The Tian Shan and its Flowers
about the habitat of Eritrichium tianschanicum: Rock crevices, rocky river deposits, grassland,
moraines, from subalpine to alpine zone, 2500 - 3000m.

Today I discovered this C. hadriaticus flower, this should be 'C. hadriaticus GR 70/08' but I suspect it was mistakenly labelled by the sender and should be 'C. hadriaticus f. lilacinus' am I correct?

In Tian Shan I saw this at 3800 meters. I think it should be 3600-3700 meters, not feet.
