Early Wildflowers of Nova Scotia
Wildflowers are always special; a treat to see and smell, a boon to birds and bees, and a reminder of how it used to be everywhere before the strip loggers arrived.
The Natural Resources Department(the strip loggers) does very little good but one thing they did do right was designating the semi-wilderness barrens and scrub forest of the south-eastern Chebucto Peninsula as a nature reserve. One of the reasons had to be the abundance of the semi-arctic Golden Heather.
Rare with a very short flowering period
