Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Fresh New Look after the Rain

Last week my wife and I paid a return visit to one of our favourite outlooks overlooking the Lower Arrow Lake. After a long dry spell so early in the spring season, Nature was quite a bit behind. But now it had a new fresh look after a much needed rain. Apart from capturing the landscape in the clear air with the clouds forming a dramatic background, my focus was on the colourful flowers and bushes that attracted my attention. The pictures turned out to be so stunning and beautiful that I make no apologies for going over my limit of five photos per post. Enjoy.

    They are indeed stunning! And why do you limit yourself to five?

      Some people post just one picture, others way too many. I try to find the right balance somewhere in the middle. It gives people time to appreciate the beautiful aspects of nature without flooding them with too many impressions.

        Good balance. I try to do the same with words, but it’s very hard to tell a complete story in few words.

    I thought that last photo looked like our blackberry and dewberry flowers, and sure enough: I’d bet that’s the boysenberry bloom. The Indian paintbrush is one of my favorites. They’re an early spring flower here, but when I was out last weekend, there were many new ones blooming. I can’t say I was sorry. The view of the flower-framed lake is my favorite. You do live in a beautiful area.

      It is a boysenberry bloom. You guess it. It is very abundant here. Thank you for your kind comment. Always appreciated!

      Thank you for your kind words of appreciation! I still have a lot to learn when it comes to naming some plants in our area.

    The paintbrush is one kind of flower you share with Texas, even though the species differ. How common are paintbrushes there?

      The paintbrush is quite common here in our area. Later in August it can be seen high up in the alpine meadows.

        It seems the high altitude and resulting cooler temperature push the blooming season to a later part of the year.
