Island has such a variety of plants, flowers and bushes, walking in the forest
open areas can be so pleasing to the eye. I still remember the first time I
hiked up to flower ridge in Strathcona Park. It was a breathtaking experience to
me. I was just a young man in my late teens. I can still see the meadows so
covered in sweetly scented flowers that it looked like fantasy painting from one
of the great artists. I was completely overwhelmed by nature that day.
So go on a nature walk
and stop to smell the flowers. The fresh air and exercise will do you good.
We will list as many
plants here as we can, this will be an ongoing project as there are so many on

island with some being very deadly, we have listed them here also.
