finally.

(viewed 778 times)
Today was the first time I saw my photos of native plants being used. I was at the big Toronto flower show and someone gave me this pack of native plant cards. They are my photos, which I took for Evergreen. Evergreen is a really great thing in our city, and I am really pleased to be part of it. Today it was just good to finally see where my photos are going.

more skunk cabbage

You have to admire a plant that can melt ice and snow to get up and out. They don't smell strongly like a skunk--they smell like something is off in the fridge. Just a bit off.

there's news from the swamp. this is skunk cabbage. I found it. took me a week and a lot of time in swamps. it stinks and it's beautiful. it melts the ice on its way up to the sun.

blue skies over me

Today I was out all day photographing native plants. I did not find the elusive skunk cabbage, but I found lots of other things. I hope the giant slab is a bee house. it had holes in the bottom for ventilation.

snow with soul

I am out tramping around looking for a plant called skunk cabbage because it has this amazing ability to melt the snow. This snowsoul is miles from anywhere, and it took me a long time to walk along the road and figure out what it was.
