A Second Spring

Victoria usually dries out during the latter part of summer and when the rains return in autumn it is almost like a second springtime. Mosses, lichens and ferns cover the forest floor with vibrant greens. These ferns were springing up yesterday in Thetis Lake Regional Park.

Out here, people eat the ferns when they are still coiled up....they are called fiddleheads and are quite yummy cooked with butter, salt and pepper. Tastes a bit like asparagus.
