Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

More Tall Grasses and Beauty in the Thicket

The Alberta rose had her hay-day, the creeks are adopting a more tranquil tone, and the local golf course is busier than ever in spite of Covid-19. But Nature shows a more summer-like appearance now. The wild cherry trees are loaded, the Saskatoon berries are getting ripe and as reported last week my wife and I have been picking huckleberries, the wild relatives of the blueberry. Here is another set of recent photos I took when taking a leisurely walk with my wife along the edge of the local golf course. Enjoy.

    Hello Peter.

    What a great nature study! Lovely photos. When we were on road trip, we did find Cloudberries, which were ripe for picking. Exist them there where you live?

    Have a nice day!

      Unfortunately, I do not know Cloudberries. They may not exist where we live. Have a great day, Satenada!

    The bounty of summer harvest is wonderful. Enjoy the huckleberry picking. Noticed your photo of fireweed. Here in Alaska, when it flowers at the top we have 6 weeks until we may see snow or cold temperatures.

    Are those the Saskatoon berries on the photo with Biene?
    I love the grass photos!
    Und im ersten Foto das Weidenröschen, so schön und doch so oft als Unkraut verpönt.

    I really have come to enjoy photos of grasses; combined with clouds, they’re even more appealing. The photo of your sweet berry-picker is delightful.

      My wife had to chuckle when I read the comment to her. Thank you!

  7. Thank you Peter for sharing the JOY of nature, that surrounds you, the first and third picture those flowers remind me so much of Germany. Keep enjoying the peace and beauty of nature.

    What a happy post, Peter and I love seeing Bien enjoying nature – I was thinking: what a cute little colorful bunny hiding among the grasses 🙂

    Hooray for the seemingly ubiquitous (yet never iniquitous) fireweed.

    Beautiful! Since you mentioned golf, it should be counted as the most social distancing friendly pursuit. Most self-respecting courses being upward of 150 acres, you will never have more than 1 person per acre on a golf course. No wonder they are booming 🙂
