It was well worth the half hour walk up the neighborhood trails into Mt. Tolmie Park this morning. What a sight – – the camas is in bloom!
I like garry oak meadows. They’re especially inspiring when colored with a sea of blue. Spring is really here.
Who would expect wilderness just a short 5km from Victoria’s inner harbour?
Checking out the wildflowers in April & May is at the top of my list for reasons to be a tourist in Victoria.
AND if you’re fortunate enough to be around during the last saturday of April, it’s worthwhile checking out Camas Day in Beacon Hill Park. Its hosted by Friends of Beacon Hill Park & has wildflower tours & speakers. 🙂
