What I brought back from Switzerland: Collection of Alpine Flowers

From my recent trip to Switzerland in early June, I took numerous photos of flowers. As my family and I hiked up the Alpine mountains, I was completely taken in by these flowers covered and surrounded by icy snow. This is a story of Alpine flowers.

p.s. Because I am not a flower expert, identifying the names of flowers was a challenging task for me. Thus, I welcome any feedback and hope everybody can help me finish identifying flower names! 🙂

Burnet Rose / Rosa spinosissima

 Immergrunes Felsenblumchen

Pasque Flowers

Koch’s Gentian (Gentianas Acaulis) 

Pale Mountain Dandelion

Nerved knapweed / Centaurea alpestris

Houseleek / Sempervivum arachnoideum

Alpine Marguerite / Leucanthemopsis Alpina

Bigger bladderwort / Bladder Campion

Alpine kidney-vetch / Genista alpestris

Spring Crocus / Crocus Albiflorus

Alpine Pasque flower / Pulsatilla Alpina

From here on: needs to be identified!!
