Flowers in the Woods

Tucked amongst the undergrowth in the Canadian wilderness, waiting to be discovered, were lots of wildflowers, and we enjoyed finding them. Lupine added a lovely touch to the already spectacular scenery.

We also saw bunchberry, which is a relative of dogwood, spirea, twinflower, columbine, pine-drop, paintbrush, and yellow lilies.








The roar and splashing of the waterfalls are hard to ignore, but just as lovely were these little spots of color tucked in along the paths to the falls!

Beautiful.

I've tried growing bunchberry on our land but it wasn't happy here. It's so pretty.

Great pictures. My FIL & MIL grew Lupine in their flower garden. I transplanted a few, but they never did as well as theirs.
