Blue Flowers

These flowers (Brodiaea coronaria) were photographed in summer at Gowlland Tod Provincial Park near Victoria BC. The park stretches along the eastern side of Saanich inlet. It has some wonderful meadows and a variety of wildflowers. Summers in Victoria are typically very dry and by late summer the grasses in the meadows have turned brown. This is in contrast to the conditions in winter, when so much on southern Vancouver Island is green.

Gowlland Tod is a popular day trip for Victorians. Here's a set of photos. Note the arbutus in bloom.
