Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wild Flowers of the Arrow Lake Region

After looking at some of the garden flowers I would like to devote two posts to the wild flowers of our region. I start off with the most humble and ubiquitous flower, the dandelion, which as a weed is also invading our gardens. It is pretty both as a flower and as a seed head. In the springtime you will find the wild strawberry flower adorning the edges and trails of our woods. The sweet peas also have a wild cousin which attract a lot of insects during their blooming season. Finally, rare and protected in British Columbia is the magnificent tiger lily. Enjoy.

  1. Ich finde, die kühlen Gegenden unserer Erde bringen die schönsten Blüten hervor. Das Foto von der Pusteblume ist der absolute Hammer! Ich weiß, dass Gärtner sie nicht besonders mögen, aber ich mochte die Butterblume schon immer. Als Kinder haben wir mit ihnen Kränze geflochten.
