Floored by flowers

On Thursday, I made my spring pilgrimage to Lake Cowichan, northwest of Victoria on Vancouver Island.

The object of my adoration is wildflowers –

white trilliums, dark pink bleeding hearts, yellow woods violets and the reason for this particular BC Parks Ecological Reserve: pink fawn lilies.

With a soundtrack of robins and the river flowing over stones, I tread the humus-soft paths of maple and alder glades floored with flowers.

It’s my annual miracle.

  1. It's super to have the opportunity to get out into the wild open spaces and deeply listen and watch. The tenderness of early spring flowers is breathtaking.
