Welcome Sights…


Spring has arrived! When the clouds were finally able to reflect their everchanging formations in the lake next to the receding ice yesterday afternoon I was glad I had taken the time to charge the batteries for my camera.

It was time to go “hunting”… for the first prairie wild flowers of the season. Last year on  March 5th I came across the first clusters, this year the humble pairie crocus is nearly two months late.

This is the time of year I throw caution to the wind, try to forget about ticks that are most likely dwelling in the dry grasses, to get close to the mauve coloured harbingers of spring. Close up studies of the crocus are best undertaken on one’s belly!

Enjoy the slide show! I had a hard time selecting my favourites so I included a number of artful photographs of crocus and other living things, including the first grass hopper of the year.

Inspiration galore – time to pull out the sketchbook, pen and ink…

    Last spring at a Saskatoon market I brought home a Prairie Crocus and planted it. I keep going out to my garden to see if anything has happened. No luck. I wish, I wish.


  3. Thanks Anna. I found a whole bunch on my walk yesterday evening. Told my Chinese neighbor that they are a definite harbinger of spring with summer around the corner. Yay.
