I wanted to pay a summer visit to the Landscapes of Canada Garden at the Canadian Museum of Nature, so I stopped by one fine day in the middle of the month. Plants from the boreal forest, the Prairie grasslands, the Arctic tundra, and the mammoth steppe have been growing here on the west side of the property, first opened last year. It starts with the plants and trees of a boreal woodland, each of which is marked, such as the ostrich fern in the second shot.
Prairie grassland is a mix of grasses and wildflowers. It's taken awhile for real growth to show up this year, perhaps because of a very rainy season, but heat has helped.
Arctic tundra is characterized by plants among slabs of rocks, plants which are thriving at the moment. The iceberg sculpture is among this area.
This plant is in the Mammoth Steppe area. It's common yarrow, otherwise called Asteraceae. The family of mammoths stand nearby, guarding the approach to the museum. They've been moved from their original position, which stood close to where the iceberg is now, but it's a good spot for them.
