Spring Flowers and Cold Southerlies
Walking the dog on Monday to get the paper and I noticed that some of the trigger plants had stuck their heads up out of the compacted sandy material near the Montreal Goldfields. The ones that flowered nearer Camel Rock were nowhere to be seen. The next day I grabbed the camera & 90mm macro plus tripod & reflector and spent an hour or so sprawled out on the stony ground trying to combat the bright sunlight and gusty wind. After much frustration and many poor shots I gave it up and much against my principles, removed one plant (I'd found several others) and took it home to photograph indoors. I was suprised how shallow and frail the root system was. I've replanted it in our garden though I hold little hope for its survival. Still you never no if you don't try!
