Hitchhiking plants along the railway


The railroad grade is a good place to see plants from outside the climate zone.

Among other hitchhikers that growing along the tracks at White Rock, the plants in these pictures include California poppy, some type of mustard plant -- a prairie native, I think -- and alfalfa.

Alfalfa also likes to hitch rides on trucks. Clumps of this prairie animal fodder are often seen blooming along BC's highways.
