awash in wild flowers!!!!!

with 2 comments

I just got a lovely gift for myself, ‘New Brunswick Wild Flowers,’ a colouring book produced by the Connell Memorial Herbarium at the University of New Brunswick. Created by Elizabeth Mills in 2021, this is a book to take you on an expedition throughout the province, month by month, season by season.



Edited by Friends of the Herbarium, each page presents a wildflower in black and white, a brief description, and a small photo to help get the colours just right! The plants are presented by name as well, including names in English, French, Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Latin.


If you’d like a book of your own, just click here, and order one from


The page for Soapwort,
a flower just now in bloom
by the covered bridge
in Rusagonis!


All my best as you hunt for wild flowers!!!
