The Northern Applachians
|A flower-rich meadow in Parc National du Bic|
Young fir seedlings as well as adult firs, high-elevation trees here in the Southern Appalachians, are iconic trees in the Northern Appalachians at sea level. Of course, many of the same plants are present in the Northern Appalachians -- the range provides a backbone for native vegetation from northern Georgia to Quebec, as well as in adjoining mountains, too.

The header for this blog is a view of Havre le Bic on the other side of the park from this view; it's equally lovely...
I was reminded, again, talking with friends at lunch after the talk, of what a special and wonderful place that this part of Quebec is; how lucky we are to have bumbled into a small historic house surrounded with a garden that's also being tweaked towards becoming a native woodland garden, but there, typical of the Northern Appalachians.
There's been lots of fun research about the species that are appropriate!
