I love to try and identify wildflowers but some I’ve never seen before until our Saturday outing into the mountains several hours away from Almaty.  Easy to pick out Queen Anne’s lace but with a pink hue.  Also, wildroses and clover are ubiquitous the world over but the others have me stumped.  One is like a stalky kind of bleeding heart, while another is a strange variation of harebells, I think the yellow are buttercups but I can’t be sure.  Finally the purple one that looks like a lupine could be a mix of a sweet pea or something else.  Wish I had a wildflower book that might help me find out more about flowers native to Kazakhstan.
