A section follows on “How To Use This Book”: description, names, abundance, bloom season, growth cycle, height. Then one must recognize life zones: alpine, subalpine, montane, foothills, pinyon-juniper, sagebrush steppes, intermountain parks (especially in Southern and Middle Rockies), high plains, wetlands — with photos to help.
Then, how botanists classify plant families, with some clues about appearance. Finally, 1,200 well-organized photographs and descriptions, divided by color: green, maroon and brown, red, blue, white, yellow.

Pathhead Flower Show
Annual Flower Show last Saturday in Pathhead Community Hall.
Some new exhibitors flexed their muscles and took on the established names in both vegetables and handicrafts with considerable success. Jim Williams, show manager, said he was delighted to see new faces and talents and hoped that new blood would ensure the continuing highlight of the society’s year. The vegetables, fruit and flowers were judged by George Harrison and Ian Gillan, with mother and daughter team of Rena Donaldson and Gillian Buchanan tasked with the daunting prospect of dealing with cookery, handicrafts, decorative and children’s’ entries.With an association with ‘The Horti’ dating back around 50 years Fiona Dalrymple was introduced. After commenting on how difficult the weather had been between rain, cold and a lengthy dry spell, she added that the wonders of nature had allowed so many growers to recover and show off some splendid produce. Following some words of encouragement urging younger people to come forward and be involved she presented the winners with their awards and trophies. Jim Williams then thanked her and presented her with a bouquet of flowers.RESULTSConfin... (thhead Flower Show)Sep 10, 2018

Macys Day Parade on the West Coast Rose Parade CEO says change is coming (but it doesnt involve balloons)
Their concern? That their beloved Rose Parade would turn into a corporate, show tune-filled, two-hour-long advertisement and that the parade’s namesake flowers would become an afterthought.
“They’re worried about the commercialization,” said Laura Monteros, a journalist who’s covered the parade for a decade. “Some people complain about the (corporate) signs on the floats now. They don’t want those signs to get bigger and — this is where there needs to be balance — they don’t want to see any change.”
Change is indeed coming to the 130-year-old Rose Parade as part of a push to earn the loyalty of younger viewers and float sponsors alike, tell stories, build revenue and increase the cohesiveness of the tournament’s sometimes discrete parts, Chief Executive Officer David Eads said in an interview Thursday.
Viewers should expect to see more entertainment: Equestrian units that have long been part of the parade will be joined by newcomers that can offer a new twist. Floats will increasingly take advantage of emerging technologies, such as augmented reality — like Singpoli’s entry last year, which allowed spectators to experience Chinese folklore and watch watch the float’s real-life floral fish transform into a dragon on their smartphones.
