Vanilla in the Camas

Path

Vanilla put on her blue coat…

.

.

Tree

…and walked through the Garry Oak woods.

.

.

Indian Plum

The path wound past the Indian Plum…

.

.

grassy

…and through the grassy sward…

.

.

Miner’s Lettuce

…and next to the Miner’s Lettuce patch.

.

.

Sit

It is a long way…

.

.

Tunnel

…but at last Vanilla arrived…

.

.

walk

…at the Camas meadows.

.

.

Buds

Some spikes of Camas are still folded up…

.

.

blue

but when they flower they are gorgeous, both on their own…

.

.

surrounded

…or in a raft of heavenly blue…

.

.

Meadow

…Vanilla wishes she could stay here all day!

  1. Yes, so lovely…love that “raft of heavenly blue”…very similar to our “rafts” here of bluebells or Mertensia virginica. Catching sight of Vanilla’s soft blue coat (I got the book!) is so soothing with the pretty, natural background of green and variations offered at this time of the year.

    • The bluebell woods must be so lovely – we have some escaped bluebells here, but they are not native to the area. Hence they are removed whenever possible from the camas meadows, or they would take them over.

  2. Oh so beautiful and poetic…I feel like Becky does love “that raft of heavenly blue.” Our parks just reopened and the trees are all budding out…now if only the rain would stop…we will be able to go out and enjoy the Spring flowers.
