HIghrock Park 2

Here's another Highrock Park scene. Here the golden grass is dotted with Bachelor's Buttons (Centaurea cyanus), not a native plant but one that has naturalized itself so successfully that it seems like it belongs here. I always like to see their bright blue flower heads because they remind me of my mother who taught me their name when I was a small boy. In the above photo we are looking westward from the summit of Highrock Park with Metchosin and the Sooke Hills in the distance.

I've never seen bachelor buttons grow so tall! I love their colour.
