Asleep beneath the snow

When I left home this morning the temperature was a balmy 15º and ten degrees lower than that in Weeksville canyon. Half a mile up the road to the trail head, as I walked past an area that I know well for its wildflowers which are sleeping now beneath the warm blanket of snow it occurred to me to match a few scenes with the flower species that are found in each.
