A collection of flora from the pacific wonderland.

Western Anemone seed head (Anemone occidentalis)

Glacier Peak, WA. 8/2006.

This is the seed head of the plant, after the flower has gone.  The flower is here.  The plant has many nicknames,  including Chalice Flower and Western Pasqueflower, and the unusual looking seed head has given it several more, including Old Man of the Mountain and Tow-headed Baby, and we’ve even heard it called “Mouse-on-a-stick.”  The ones in this picture are certainly mouse-like.  Washington’s Glacier Peak is in the background.
