To aid users of mobile devices as well as those with a mouse or laptop finger pad this site uses a simple image-based menu system. Virtually every picture you see (images and photos) are links to more information arranged in a sort of top-down structure. See an image, click or tap on it to open a new page.

Make a selection from any of the lists below that match the flower you saw and a filtered selection of possible flowers will be displayed. The more of the four options you specify the smaller the number of likely flowers will be displayed but if you are too specific then you may eliminate your flower from the choices if they do not exactly match my groupings! Have fun ...
