Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Got a Guess, What Am I??

Found growing at Arches National Park in Moab at the end of April.

Below, the flowers in "bud" stage.

Below, flowers, quickly becoming "spent".

The stalk or stem:

The whole plant.

So, what is it??

Rumex hymenosepalus, commonly known as Canaigre or wild rhubarb, found growing at Arches National Park in Moab.

*  The stem gave it away to me.  LOL
