Fresh edible flowers found at a home in Victoria
Posted On August 5, 2021
A home in west Vancouver has become a beacon for locals looking for fresh edible floral plants after being flooded by a flood.
The flood occurred after a tree fell and broke into a flower garden at the home.
“The trees were just falling off and it just sort of cascaded into the garden,” said Ashley Cawthorn, who lives on Burrard in southwest Vancouver.
Cawtons husband had the same garden with the same tree in it, so she was excited to find the fresh flowers at the bottom of the garden.
“I saw them, and it was just incredible,” Cawths husband said.
“It was just like ‘wow.'”
CawTHorns garden has a total of 12 flowers, including a flower that is about two inches across and about 2.5 inches tall.
“We just wanted to show them to them that we’re there, we’re here,” Caws husband said, adding that the flowers have made him and his family proud.
Caws garden is a little more than a mile away from the other house that was flooded.
The family has a couple of flower beds that are about three feet wide.
“If you look closely, you can see the roots of the tree,” Cwthorns husband said of the flowers.
“They’re all about a foot tall, they’re all flowers.
I just thought ‘that’s pretty cool.'”
