On 13 December 2017, I was out on the road by 9:20 am, which is a miracle in itself. I find it almost impossible to get out early when I am going for a drive by myself. I didn't have any photos edited ready to post that morning, which helped. Seeing sn…

Silky Scorpionweed / Phacelia sericea, Pocaterra Cirque
When I checked my photostream, I was surprised to find that I only have one photo of Scorpionweed added, and that photo was taken on Plateau Mountain, Kananaskis. I have only seen this plant maybe two or three times, so it was a treat to see it on 25 Jul…

The only times I had ever seen Heliconia plants, before our trip to Trinidad & Tobago in March 2017, was in the Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. What a thrill it was to see these spectacular plants growing in the wild.

If it looks cold, it's because it WAS cold - brutally cold!

This photo was taken on 29 December 2017, when four of us (using just one car) took part in the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count for the Cochrane Wildlife Reserve area. I'm not sure why it's…

This shot of an unidentified plant was taken at the Asa Wright Nature Centre, Trinidad, on 19 March 2017.

This adventure was only the second holiday of any kind, anywhere, that I have had in something like 30 or 35 years! The other holiday was a wonde…

I wasn't going to post any photos this morning, as I had none that were edited. I had to spend hours yesterday, trying to contact various services to update my credit card information. My previous card had been shut down when two suspicious transactions…

The end of an Artichoke
With a lot of snow forecast for 8 of the following 10 days, I feel very lucky that my daughter and I had such a beautiful day on 17 December 2017, for our Christmas get-together. Along with the snow has come much colder temperatures, too, unfortunately.…
