|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.
