A photo ramble today in Uplands Park – March 21-2015. Fawn Lilies and Shooting Stars in bloom everywhere. The first Camas & Buttercup flowers appearing. So green and so wet. So beautiful.
Some photos, taken by Wayne & Kathleen Matthews, from March 19 and March 21, 2105, are available on FLIKR, in an “album”, but in random order, at https://www.flickr.com/photos/imagerambling/sets/72157649169450754/
Our Friends of Uplands Park wordpress blog/website has used up it’s free space allocation, so until we decide what to do, future postings will be without embedded photos.
A walk in Uplands Park on Sunday February 2015. Indian Plum is blooming – evoking an Oak Bay early spring meadow “snow fall”. Spring is springing. Moss is green green. Nootka Rose canes reddening. Patches of Shooting Star whorls promise future pink petals. Blue Camas leaves emerging into light. Vernal pools protecting spaces where Water Plantain Buttercup is waiting. Ducks forage in Central Meadow vernal pools. Arbutus is in bloom. Here are some photos.
A cold sunny day in Uplands Park on the first day of the New Year. Just the best place for a photo ramble.

A lovely afternoon in Uplands Park as 12 people joined Friends of Uplands Park Co-Chair Kathleen Matthews, and, Wayne Matthews, on our Spring 2014 Blooming Fawn Lilies Nature Walk. The Fawn Lilies were indeed blooming, along with Chocolate Lilies, meadows glowing with Common Camas, Great Camas, Spring Gold, Western Buttercup, and Shooting Stars, patches of Yellow Montane Violets and Water Plantain Buttercups. The Indian Plums were peach coloured, the Saskatoon Berry shrubs in bloom, and new Garry Oak and Nootka Rose leaves emerging. Thanks to Wayne Matthews for taking photos.
The Fawn Lilies are at their best this weekend. Also some Water Plantain Buttercups and lots of Camas and Shooting Stars. Some white shooting stars too. Here are some photos Wayne took today .
