Interestingly, the inner bark of the willow has been used as a folk remedy for pain relief and to aid inflammation.
Lupine: Lupines grow in abundance in the boreal forest with waves of blues and purples everywhere you look! The Lupine's leaves are also noteworthy; after a rain, the droplet of water cupped in the center of the Lupine's leaves is one of the beautiful images in all of nature.
Wild Rose: Every spring as the weather warms into summery temperatures, wild roses burst into bloom.
