Opening their faces to the world without warning in early Spring, the cinquefoil is steeped in history and symbology. Resembling wild strawberry flowers, these tiny white flowers represent innocence, purity and virtue. These little wildflowers are also referred to as the "rose of Venus" and can be found in architecture and literature from the middle ages to the current day. I find these little flowers dotted beneath old trees on a cliff near my home. With some careful footing and solid boots on, I climb down the cliff to collect the little flowers where no one else ever goes. It is here that wild otters and beavers also make their home and deer cross the river below.
