This is not a wheat field, despite its superficial resemblance to an early morning landscape in the rolling hills near Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The tiny violet in the middle of the photograph suggests you’re looking at something much smaller in scale. Indeed, this patch of turfy coprosma is perhaps one of the densest concentrations of flowers in UBC Botanical Garden – I’d estimate ten thousand in a square metre, maybe more.
