Spring wildflowers with Andy McKinnon
by Janet Alred, 20 May 2011
On Friday 22 people showed up at 8am to meet the previous night’s speaker, Andy McKinnon. Although the campsite was in shadow at first, gradually it warmed up as the sun reached it. Nodding onion, Chocolate lilies, Sea blush, Monkey flower, Shooting stars, Blue-eyed Mary, Death camus, Saxifrage, Saskatoon, Salal, and many others were examined and commented on before the session ended at 10:00 AM. Andy had just enough time to catch a coffee at Nancy’s and make the noon ferry home to Metchosin.
