B.C. Wildflowers - June Note Card Party




Wildflowers of Vancouver Island is my theme for this month's Note Card Party, hosted by Vee. This first photo is of a columbine found while hiking "off-trail" at Englishman River Falls.


 Isn't this Columbia Lily stunning? It was blooming in the forest on Sonora Island, a little bit off the trail where we walked to the cliff overlooking the narrow passage named "Hole in the Wall."

This wild rose grew alongside the road near our home in Parksville. Since last summer the bushes have been torn out, the trees cut down and a new subdivision of small homes crowds the land. Sigh.



This last selection is a Henderson's Shooting Star, captured while hiking the Coast Trail at East Sooke Park in April.

It takes time to go back and find these photos, and the posts in which they were featured, but it's fun to re-live some of the experiences.  Click on over to Vee's Haven where you'll find many more photos that would be lovely as note cards.

All of these flowers are Beautiful, but the shooting star really captivates me. I have never seen one like it.
This would make a most attractive set of note cards sure to bring a smile to the receiver.

Beautiful photos of beautiful flowers! I love the wild rose, sad it was destroyed. We have lots of sweet peas and queen anne's lace all over. Summer is such a beautiful time! Thanks so much for your sweet comments about my painting. I like cups too...I don't know what it is about them.

A beautiful wildflower selection for your note cards, Lorrie, I would certainly buy some of these if I saw them in the National Trust catalogue.

Katherine said...

Oh, Lorrie, what stunning shots! I always am on the lookout for wildflowers when we hike and yours are amazing. The colour in those Henderson's Shooting Stars are breathtaking.

Thanks for sharing!

I think these are the prettiest photos for cards that I've seen. Wildflowers are so beautiful and you take such wonderful photos! You really should print these, my friend!

Carol said...

The shooting stars really caught my eye! Gotta love the rose and the lily!

Kathryn Ross said...

So nice of you to stop by at my Note Card Party debut, Lorrie! I have thoroughly enjoyed your note cards here - stunning! I wish I had more of a command of garden facts and flowers. Beyond me, I admit.

Many congrats about your little Sadie - such a great story about your thoughts as she came into the world - and your own experience in Ecuador. Nostalgic - how time does fly . . .
Joy!
Kathy

The wildflowers of British Columbia make for a beautiful note card collection. Great pic's!

Friko said...

May developers, who rip out perfectly good flora, rot in a concrete hell for the rest of their lives and beyond.

I hope you will be able to find all your other precious blooms for many years to come.
