Some new wildflowers just finished...

Clematis occidentalis

Allium cernuum

Monotropa uniflora

Aster canescens

Cypripedium calceolus

Aralia nudicaulis

Maianthemum canadense

Ledum groenlandicum

You can see by the dates on these that I took a while to get them id'd and done up, but they're coming along now. There're quite a few more, however. Some of you probably remember me finding some of these flowers while we were vacationing together. Others were taken while Gerard and I were on some of our weekend adventures.

Expedition to Vernon June 23, 2007

We thought we'd head to Saskatchewan for a change last weekend when we had a few days off. However when Gerard's sister called needing help with her fence in Vernon, British Columbia, our direction changed entirely. It's been a dry spring for me as a photographer with nothing to post since April , even though the weather was good and wet, and flowers have been everywhere. We'll start summer off with these few I took on the way home from Vernon on the roadside. I'd been trying to get Gerard to stop for a while when finally a pull-out came up with flowers all around, and waterfalls, too. I took off in one direction down the road on a flower hunt, and he took off up into the hills for waterfall photos. It started raining - it had been raining off and on all day - so we got a little wet and had alot of fun.
