Wildflower Friday (ok, I made that one up!)
My region of the world....the "Cariboo" region of BC, is full of beauty.
At this time of year the wildflowers bring a rainbow of colour to the forests.
I wanted to share them with you, because yeah, I'm proud of where I live!
A few of them I just learned the names of now, after living here for 20 years! The Balsam Root has had me puzzled ever since we moved here. All of these pictures, except the daisies,and the dogwood were taken in the forest on our property, those I got from flickr, but they do grow on our property as well:
Wild roses - rosehips
Deltoid Balsam Root (my camera wouldn't cooperate on the fuzzy close-up...sorry!)
Dwarf Dogwood (The regular sized dogwood is my province's flower)
I tricked my son into walking with me & my camera.....
Thanks for bearing with me and my showcase!!
