Having just learned that yesterday's flowering plant was an invasive species called the Red Deadnettle, I decided to post another Highrock Park invader today, though these little blue and white blossoms seem innocent of any imperial intent. This is Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa). This patch comes up every year in the same place and probably escaped from a nearby garden some years ago.

Such pretty flowers! Too bad they're considered invasive. Nice capture.

It is a beautiful flower, beautifully photographed. Too bad it is an invasive plant.

Absolutely loving these close-ups.
A whole other subset universe under our pedestrian noses.
If we were to chip in for a microscope ......., telescope ..

Well I wouldn't mind if some of these invaded my yard! They are so pretty!

Great pictures! I was just wondering if you could point out a place somewhere in downtown Victoria of where I can find the Pacific Dogwood flower and the Western Red Cedar? I need to take some pictures for a project.
