Fraser River Park

The Nootka Rose was planted by farmers who settled at the site of present-day Fraser River Park. Along with crab apples, they were used as erosion control.

lazy pie...

Blackberry galette

BC Day hike

Hollyburn Mountain
Second time up, but first time with views. Last year (almost to the day) was very different – shrouded in fog and drizzle but eerily beautiful (I expected a bear to emerge through the misty Salal berries) and there were Whiskey Jacks waiting to be hand-fed at the top (none today, unfortunately).

blackberry season

Approaching the height of blackberry season. Picked enough today on the Greenway and at Fraser River Park to make a little something. There was a family there with containers and the same idea. There's something very satisfying about foraging.
