    Hi, My brother-in-law sent me this great flower picture from "Ancient Lake which is near a place called Dusty lake which is not too far from Quincy", in Central Washington State. He sent it to me with some others to try and identify for him, thinking I might know. But not being from that area and not seeing this plant first hand I don't have a feel for even a starting place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Harry Thomas

    Hello Harry,

    I think I have it - the scale of the photograph threw me for a loop when I first saw it, and I imagined the plants larger than what they actually are.

    Check out Eriogonum thymoides (thyme-leaved buckwheat).

    I'm a bit familiar with that area - I used to drive through Soap Lake down Highway 97 all the time. I'd definitely like to return there to photograph wildflowers - perhaps this summer.

    Hi Daniel,

    I am really impressed. I never would have made the leap to Eriogonum. I thank you, and I'm sure my brother-in-law thanks you too.

    Harry
