Blues and Grass
Another set of pictures taken during the rain along the eastern boundary of Beacon Hill Park in amongst the Garry Oaks and other tree species. There are small meadows, with bedrock outcrops in places, and in the meadows in this part of the park are a mix of the native camas and introduced bluebells. They go very well together, though I would rather see just the camas as bluebells can be found in any garden and camas is struggling in the many corrupted habitats it once thrived in.
So, here is a selection of pictures from amongst the grass and the flowers, with the occasional rain drop captured in descent.
