A Journey of a Thousand Flowers

Alpine bush-flower surviving the extreme condition, near Ama Dablam Khumbu Nepal (2015)

A Valentine's post, remembering many of the beautiful creations that simply make everyone smile.
Outdoor travel will almost always expose one to great opportunities to see a wide variety of flowers, of any shape, color and kind!
Throughout my decades of travel, I've pictured some every now and then, and still deciding whether to regret not capturing others.
So for your next outdoor escape, make sure you click that cam every single time you see a flower. You'd eventually realize that these seemingly "pass-by or momentary decorations" can actually add color and beauty in your travel or outdoor memories.

I don't know all the names or natural history or ecological significance of each, so this is gonna be a show-and-only-show post. :)  Enjoy!
