I can’t help it – every time I see a flower for the first time each year, I have to take a picture of it. This year, being in a different region, I got to see some flowers that were entirely new to me. Others are old friends. Here is a record of what I saw this past week. I don’t have a Nunavut plant guide or access to a library right now, but I noted the identity of the plant where I could.
Willow trees are all over the place, growing much bigger than they usually do near Iqaluit. My obsession this time was taking their pictures reflected in the still little ponds that are everywhere while the snow melts.
