    I realize perhaps they are sending scenic pix and subsequently you are curious re the plants in photos. I can see why !

    If you ever get a chance to visit (I know!) or the cousins go back to Aus ... these are good books and would be easy to find in a shop at Whistler BC

    Plants of Coastal British Columbia

    ÉDIT - i am guessing cuz hard to see but knowing the area, I would guess the purple blue flower on the left is Lupin. This is a very common plant from Arctic to desert, alpine to ocean shore. There are many diff versions of it - all beautiful and commonly viewed as a large swath of color in our spring time early summer.

    Thanks Georgia.
    One day, I’ll visit out of the ski season.
    My big trouble is that your part of the world is so beautiful that I won’t be able to leave
