This spring the plants are bushing up and starting to cover the ground in a forest-floor kind of way.
And just this morning I spotted an actual flower. There's hope for the kinnikinnick after all. Now if I could only find an easy way to get the arbutus leaves out of it!
(Apologies for the out-of-focus photos--it was starting to rain!)
