I have decided to keep a separate gallery of wildflowers for each current year. During that year the gallery will be sorted in reverse order of date taken so that the most recent pictures appear at the beginning of this gallery. At the end of each year I'll collect the pictures into the main wildflower gallery, which is sorted in ascending order of date taken. See that gallery here: http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Nature/Blooms-Through-the-Year/Wildflowers-Past-Years/5424475_QmrpZJ . I'll also re-sort the year's gallery in ascending order.
Included here are any flowers seen growing in wild or natural environments, as well as species known to occur in the wild but seen planted in various garden settings. Flowers might be native to North America, or alien imports, mainly from Europe.
