The Flower Way II
Today’s post revisits the Flower Way Garry Oak meadow that I showed details from a few days ago. These pictures are the setting of this small triangle of meadow that has Garry Oak, some Arbutus and a grassy meadow of wild flowers with the occasional introduced species doings its best to ruin the local ecosystem.
The fawn lilies (white), camas (blue) and shooting stars (pink) are most prominent. This meadow is marked on the Capital Regional District map as a park, with the name “Traffic Island” in it. Since there is another similar triangular park nearby, with the same label, I think that this is not actually its name, and that probably means it does not have one. In my earlier post I explain why this family calls it the The Flower Way, and think that is a perfectly good name for a small park, and hereby dub it as such. Oak Bay municipality – are you listening?

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).
