“What happened next was the unexpected beauty that unfolded as a reward for all the hard work. A side effect of clearing the forest that wasn’t anticipated was the visual transformation of the forest floor. The following spring my friend was rewarded with what can only be described as something out of a fairy tale—a picturesquely carpeted forest floor, alive with flowers and colour. Starting directly after the snowmelt, anywhere that the sunlight could filter through the now more open forest canopy, the first flowers of spring, white star-shaped spring beauties began to bloom. Crawling up the mountainside, followed closely by the richest of yellow buttercups, and after that tall purple mountain lupine. As she described the beauty of the flowers, I was certain that what she had just told us was going to have an impact on our project. “ – Sharon Roberts
