Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Spring Impressions at our Outlook

The speed of the arrival of spring at our beloved viewpoint a few km south of Fauquier was truly impressive this year. The sideroad built for the BC Hydro crews greeted us with its leafing tender-green foliage on the birch trees. A young larch branch showed off its splendid new shoots. The look onto the lake with the flowering Oregon grape bushes was breathtaking. We spent a very long time taking pictures which included a macro of the simple and yet so beautiful flower of a wild strawberry. Enjoy.

  1. Thank you for sharing, Peter, the beauty in your world. The lake, the foliage, the flowering Oregon grape bushes, and the wild strawberry flower, are all bursting with life. New life in nature is so encouraging. Looking forward to the leaves popping out within a week in Alaska. Enjoy!

  3. I especially enjoyed seeing the young larch leaves. I’ve often seen photos of those trees golden in fall, but I don’t believe I’ve seen this view of them. It’s very appealing — as is your view generally. The wild strawberry reminds me that I need to call my blackberry grower and see how her vines fared during our extended freeze. Our dewberries are starting to ripen, and even a few pickers are out along the railroad tracks.

    1. I caught this young larch branch in the morning light. And the tender green needles impressed me a lot. In the fall the larches add a lot of colour to our green-dominated landscape. Thank you, Linda, for your appreciative comments!
