The Flower Way
Today’s post has details (mostly) of various kinds of the local wildflowers found in Garry Oak meadows around the south end of Vancouver Island and adjacent Gulf Islands. Some are full frame, others are crops removed from otherwise uninteresting images, often out of focus areas that I like for their water-colour feel
There are fawn lilies (white), camas (blue), shooting stars (pink) and some trillium details (pinkish white). With a bit of vegetation thrown in for good measure. Most of these shots are taken at what we call in my family “the flower way”, a small triangle of meadow in the Uplands of Oak Bay. When the kids were little this was along one of several routes into town from our home. Obviously this place got its name in the spring, and we used to stop to look at the flowers and then carry on into town, or just wave and call out to them as we drove past. The pleasures of wildflower meadows are many.

For a map of this location see this link (be ready to wait for a while as the pictures linked to the map take some time to upload, also you may have to scroll to the bottom of the list on the left and then choose the second page and select the flower way, I seem to be testing the limits of google maps now).
