Pacific bleeding heart (Dicentra formosa) I love walking in the forest where this lines the trail -- not a manicured garden cultivar but a wild native plant. Bees, butterflies, hummingbirds flit by. Makes me feel like part of the wild community.
It may not look at that special, but these plants are part of an endangered plant community in BC that exist only in sand dune ecosystems. In the southwest corner of the province, that is rare indeed. The spiky headed plant is called large-headed sedge; the one with the gorgeous purple-pink flowers is beach pea.
Sweet little bumblebee sampling the blossoms of salal, in Crippen Regional Park. I know that people love hiking in the park because of nature, but I always wonder how many notice the details -- like this beautiful bumble.
