Flowers of the Forest

This is a short film photographed through four seasons of the plants and flowers of the forests, lakes, bogs and rocky outcropping of the habitats of the Five Bridge Lakes Wilderness Area in Nova Scotia. Many of these plants can be found throughout the territory of Mi'kma'ki  - the Maritimes.  Most were used as medicines by the Mi'kmaq - a knowledge that was passed on to the settlers from Europe.
