God's Creation

Everything Has a Name, Part III of A Hike With Holliday

As my hike with Holliday led me farther down this delightful path, my eyes were enriched with the beauty of God’s creation. In reviewing photos of the hike, I became interested in discovering the names of the many interesting plants I saw. Here is my first discovery (more to come!!). The names are listed in the following order: family name, genus and then species name. This will be my protocol if at all possible.  Thanks to https://plants.usda.gov.

Asclepiadaceae – Milkweed family

Asclepias L. – Milkweed

Asclepias speciosa -Showy Milkweed

(Note the two little friends enjoying this exotic looking flower.)
