|Flowers of Provence
The images are arranged alphabetically in 6 groups. The last group contains "Mystery Flowers" that I have not been able to identify at all. I got the names from guidebooks and online resources, and some of them are undoubtedly incorrect, especially at the species level. If you recognize one or more of the species, I'd appreciate any help in correcting the information. Thanks to Gill Pathey-Johns who cleared up some of the mysteries and suggested possible names for others.
Most of the photos were taken in the Alpes de Haute-Provence, in the region around Forcalquier. A few were taken in the southern French Alps. Most plants were found growing in the wild, but a few are from gardens. See also the Horticultural Plants section and the Flower Closeups section.
