I just came back from a very inspiring time in the Swiss Alps. The alpine Flora was really awesome. Such a variety of plants flowering at the same time. The alpine summer is short and the plants have to be so tough to survive up there. Some members of the buttercup family I found even at 3000 meters. The images here show Aconitum napellus, the Monkshood which is one of our most powerful plants in homeopathy and Ranunculus glacialis, the glacier crowfoot. She is the highest ascending plant in the Alps, flowering at over 4000 m.
