Polygala sp

The very last couple of kilometres of road to the plateau of Itatiaia National Park is blocked by the park entrance, and even though you can drive to the camping site by the small dam, it’s not worth it! You’ll miss all the magnificent flora and fauna along the dirt road. In the rainy season […]

Monnina crassifolia?

My first encounter with monninas was close to the wall of Mount Roraima in Venezuela, albeit a slender specimen compared to this incredibly vital and beatiful member of the familfy. At first glance one might think this infloresence is of the Lupinus, but it’s not even in the same family. Altitude 3720 metres Please help […]

Blåfjær (Polygala vulgaris)

Jeg trodde lenge at det kun vokste noen blåfjær på oversiden langs Ingierstrandveien over tørrbakken i Sandbukta. Men i år klarte jeg å “snike” til meg ca en halvmeter mer av tørrbakken i Sandbukta. Normalt ville gressklippermannen dure over denne ekstra biten. Det ga raskt gevinst, for når vekstene fikk vokse seg til blomstring viste […]

This bush grows in the montane forest close to the Roraima walls. Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂

Grows alongside the path to Roraima. It’s a small plant not easily seen in between the grass. Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂

Securidaca sp ?

Grows alongside the path to Roraima. Small flowers and not easy to see among the savanna grass. Please help me classify it – leave a comment 🙂

Blåfjær (Polygala vulgaris)

En liten plante som man må nært på for å se hvilken kompleks blomst dette er. Før blomsten springer ut ser det ut som om det vil komme en liten blå blomst med kronblader som på en jordbærblomst, men blåfjær er ulik de fleste blomster. Bare å fotografere den er vrient fordi den er så […]
