Uplands Park in Oak Bay is at its finest right now as
I discovered this morning when I arrived for a paint out.
Beautiful drifts of our native Camas Lily among the
rocky outcrops in this natural Garry oak meadow are
really something to see. While I painted there this
morning it was lovely to sense the spirits of the first
peoples, whose footprints were here thousands of years
before first contact, harvesting the Camas bulbs
as a major staple of their diet.
