We have been retired since 1995. Turning that time we spent doing at lot of recreation doing activities that we enjoyed. We grave in a Moterhome for 15 years. We now live in a senior retirement home. One of the activities we enjoyed was looking for plants in their native habitat. These photos were taken at the time most showing me looking at a penstemon. There are some taken at the American Penstemon Society meeting one group in the Northwest, another in a Califormia meeting. There is one taken at Bruce Myers garden in Washington state.


Penstemon sorry the name slips rights. There acres of it in the Wenatchee mountains of Washington state. I know the name but couldn’t find it.
