Some more tundra flowers! Moss campion, Silene acaulis. These little ones are found on a heathy hillslope in very large areas.

These are Arctic Avens, Dryas integrifolia.
The summer growing season is so short here that flowers often change so quickly that you might see entirely different flowers the next time you go out in the field! This year we should see some different plants- last year was so very dry and this year has been quite wet so far. At least that means there will be water for me to sample this summer!
