Flowers of the Forest   – 16 minutes  HD

What do you see when you walk in the woods? If you are like me you walk by a lot. Perhaps you need to get down on your knees or belly and take a closer look. You might be amazed at what you see. 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.
