"To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again." - "Nature: Chapter Three" by Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

When in doubt, use the following for identification from the Palisades Free Library, N.Y. USA: "Wild Flowers of the United States: The Northeastern States Part 1 and Part 2" by Harold William Rickett, 1965, Publication of the New York Botanical Garden, McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York; Library of Congress Card Number: 66-17920; First Edition: Second Printing 52614

Other good books if the above does not cut the mustard are: Newcomb's Wildflower Guide by Lawrence Newcomb (and illustrated by Gordon Morrison), Little Brown and Company, 1977; Library of Congress Card Number 77-47 and A field guide to wildflowers of Northeastern and North-central North America by Roger Tory Peterson and Margeret McKenny, 1968, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, Library of Congress Number: 67-13042

Warning: lots of graphics and flowers pretty much inserted in order of them being observed. Is a large flat file to help aid in indentification of unknowns.
