The travelling physiotherapist was making one of his trips to Bella Coola so I took advantage of helpful drivers and went down The Hill again. It had been a month since I was down there before, seeing the surgeon on his biannual visit, so I did not expect there to be much of a display of the forest floor flowers. But the weather had been so cool and rainy they were superb.
We did get a few gleams of sun, and the wild roses smelled heavenly.
A month previously, I found only one queen’s cup out. Now they made a starry carpet everywhere. They seemed to really enjoy growing under western hemlock branches, which were most elegantly tipped with new leaves.
The physiotherapist will be back in 6 weeks. I have never been in the valley at that time of year before so it will be interesting to see what is happening then.
