WuchiI always said that Flore du Québec was a personal project and that I was the only one who contributed to it.
I was mistaken greatly and this finding clearly appeared to me this last July.
This adventure started in 2005 during one of my walks in the forest where I found that I almost could not name any plant species that I met, that's when I started taking pictures of plants, to identify them and to publish them on the net.

But I was not alone, my little dog Wuchi was with me almost every time I traveled our beautiful nature, from Abitibi to the Cote-Nord, rain or shine, from March to December and this for 12 years.

Last April, following a stupid accident my dog made a cerebral hemorrhage, for 15 days I had to feed him by making him lick the food on my finger, giving him water with a syringe, finally he recover completely.
I was not really surprised by this recovery, because my dog's courage and desire to live were inversely proportional to its size.

During these 12 years of exploration in the forest, my dog successfully crossed several tests: a microburst that left us for 24 hours alone and shivering in the woods, he was swallowed by a mud swamp, has capsize many times in canoe with me, survived encounters with raccoons, a solitary wolf and even a bear, he was a real canine runner of the woods!
Unfortunately after his spectacular recovery his health deteriorated little by little and on July 12, 2016 I had to do euthanize.

I did not have the courage to continue the adventure without him this year but now that my mourning is done I think I owe him to continue this project and that's what I will do !

Farewell, my dear friend, you will not be forgotten.

Quel touchant témoignage! Nos compagnons à quatre pattes occupent une place importante dans nos vies, et leur départ laisse toujours un grand vide. Wuchi et vous aurez vécu de belles aventures ensemble; je vous souhaite d'en vivre bien d'autres encore à sa mémoire!

je peux affirmer que les plantes communiquent entre elles et avec nous,j'avais planté 2 rosiers,je les soignais toutes de la meme facob,une fleurissait,et l'autre non,alors je me suis fachée et je lui ai ditje te traite de la meme facon je t'aime pareil et si tu ne fleuri pas,je vais te deraciner et jeter a la poubelle,croyez moi ou pas,une semaine plus tard ce rosier était aussi fleuri que l'autre.beaucoup de choses comme ca me sont arricées,c'est pourquoi je dis oui,les plantes ressentent les emotions comme nous.

1 K!You are now more than 1,000 to follow the Facebook page of Quebec Flora! This is despite the fact that I have not done much to my website or Facebook page in 2015. My limited activity last year on Flora of Quebec in no way reflects my lack of interest in this site, on the contrary, but it was rather due to minor healths problems (my vision) that prevented me. This is now fixed!
I look forward to share with you during this year my new photos, texts and discoveries on the flora of Quebec, especially since they predict a very early spring. In addition to the new species that I will add (I have over 300 plants photographed and identified), I will focus in 2016 on new discoveries that are made on the "sentience" of the plants and also on the new applications for our plants, for example the common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) that offers amazing Commercial lead.
Asclepias syriaca
So I wish you all a wonderful 2016 years filled with beautiful flora and discovery and for me, the pleasures of reading your comments.
