When #botanical experts are unwilling to leave an area, because there is so much to see, then you know you are providing a sanctuary to a plant wonderland! That was exactly the case during a FFI supported tour with #botanist John Parker. The destination? Flower Valley Farm, hidden in the Fynbos landscapes in South Africa – the home of Flower Valley Conservation Trust. @flowervalleyct is a long-time partner of FFI, and works across the #CapeFloralKingdom to protect Fynbos landscapes and those livelihoods that depend on #Fynbos harvesting.

I like ferns and mosses and admire them (obsessively at times) but that doesn't mean I know everything about them. Here, while walking around the mountain village, I was guided by my instinct to look at the patch of greenery. As I get closer, voila! It's something new to me, I'm not an expert but it creeps like a moss but has a leafy structure of some kind of a fern, so I guess this is a type of Selaginella?

GIVEAWAY! Odds last week were 1:9 🍀
As @ariazoner said so perfectly, "The Alps rock! And apparently they bloom as well." 😁
Each Sunday through the end of the year we'll post a mystery wildflower from the new "Wildflowers of the Trinity Alps" field guide, and will gift one copy of this new book each week.
We couldn't be happier with the new book (color photos of 505 wildflower species!). It's available now at your favorite independent bookstore and from backcountrypress.com.
Post your best identification guess (guess wildly - no judgement involved!) and tag two friends you'd like to take on a wildflower hunt. Do so by 11:59pm Saturday, Dec. 23 and be entered to win your copy of this beautiful new book.
One winner picked randomly each week. Congratulations to last week's winner: @humbotany 🍀
