Some more plants on the meadows.
Campanula barbata, about 10 cm high. In the lowlands, it grows more than 40 cm high. (photo 1)
The same story for this nice Campanula thyrsoides. (photo 2,3,4 and 5)
Take a good look at photo 5, the yellow plant on the background is a parasit, it's a Rhinanthus, probaly R. minor. (photo 6 and 7)
Campanula scheuchzeri (photo 8,9 an 10)

Frankie,

DSC03898
DSC03899  =  Gentiana bavarica
Leaves broadly abovate to spathulate, yellow green.

Gentiana acaulis = the calyx lobes ovate and spreading at the tips.

Gentiana clussi =  calyx lopes long-pointed, straight, more or less parallel with the corola tobe, usually on limestone.

Thanks Franz.

And more plants on the meadows.
Many, many Potentilla, I think it's P. aurea. (photo 1, 2 and 3)
Knautia arvensis (photo 4)
The seedhead of an Pulsatilla (photo 5)
This is probably Hieracium aurantiacum (photo 6 and 7)
Centaurea montana. (photo 8)
Cirsium spinosissimum (photo 9 and 10) grows very low, about 50 cm, on the alpinemeadows.

Seems to me some of those Marmots are much cuter than others, Frankie. :)  Congratulations on your handsome sons! 8)
