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