Fun with Crayons!

The Plant Conservation Alliance, which is part of the Bureau of Land Management, has created a set of "Celebrating Wildflowers" coloring books. From their Northwest Coloring Book you can download the pictures to color, along with color guides, for such invasive species as Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria), the not-actually-from-Canada Canada Thistle (Cirsium arvense) and Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius). The web pages that list the species have no information other than the common and scientific names, but the coloring book pages themselves do have a little "Noxious Weed" note opposite the "Celebrating Wildflowers" logo.
