Wild Flowers of Armenia

Meadow sweet. Toothwort. Common Spotted Orchid. Creeping Thyme. Yarrow. Knapweed and Salsify. Cornflowers and Gentians. White and Red Clover. Poppies. Flax. Tormentil. Oxeye Daisies. Vetch. Musk Thistle. Sainfoin and Vervain. Mulleins and Fleabanes. Larkspur. Lady’s Mantle. Catmint. Cow Parsley and Queen Anne Lace. Bird’s Foot Trefoil. Basket of Gold. Forget-Me-Not. Bellflower. Cowslip. Lousewort. Stitchwort. The names are nearly as lovely as the flowers themselves. All these were found and photographed on my travels around Goris and Sisian in Syunik Marz in spring and early summer. The Alpines and Succulents are from high on the mountain of Ughtasar. I am lucky to live here.
