Table Elements
My sister made up the candles and the flower basket (her preparation was nothing short of heroic), my mother lent the table cloths, my sisters class made the origami butterflies (600 of them!), and my dad put in the lights.

Large Red Flower
I believe this is an ornamental ginger.

Nootka Rose

This was one of the flowers that was growing in the patch behind our camp site.
I'm pretty sure this is a worn out example of Nootka Rose.  This is a shrub, not a wild flower.

Daisies with Picnic Table

This is classic BC Parks for me - a field of daisies, there trademark picnic tables
and a beautiful blue sky.

Common Red Paintbrush - Castilleja miniata

As we ascended up Hatchethead Mountain we encountered a clearing with Paintbrush.  As we continued to ascend,
the paintbrush thinned out and disappeared again.

Species: Castilleja miniata (Giant Red Indian Paintbrush)

Tiger Lily

This example of Lilium columbianum.  There is a superstition
(or so says my book) that smelling a tiger lily will give you freckles.

Species: Lilium columbianum (Columbian lily)

Crowds With Lotus Flowers In Pond
The flowers were moving pretty quick - it getting a stationary shot would have required a very fast exposure.

Irises By Beaver Lake
More of what you are seeing here is invasive. The Yellow Iris's (Yellow Flag Iris) block out cattails that should be growing here. Most of the lilies you see are fragrant water lily - again invasive. The native lilies are yellow.
Species: Iris pseudacorus (paleyellow iris, yellow flag), Nymphaea odorata (Fragrant Water Lily)

Marigold In Moss
It amazes me that this same species can be found in so many different places - how could this plant get from one mountain to another, let alone from the mainland to Vancouver Island.
Species: Caltha leptosepala (White Marsh Marigold)

Marsh Marigolds In Grasses
I believe this is Marsh Marigold - Caltha biflora. This plant seems to love the water - I only found it in very boggy bits where snow pack or a small stream kept the ground saturated.
Species: Caltha leptosepala (White Marsh Marigold)

Canadian Dogwood
Or Cornus canadensis to closer friends. The white parts (pedals to those not in the know) are actually bracts modified leaves. The flowers are the tiny green things in the very center that I didn't get close enough to see.
Species: Cornus canadensis (Canadian Dogwood, Canadian bunchberry)
