Prairie Crocus in Full Flower

A second look at a Prairie Crocus, a beautiful symbol of spring. (And first wildflower I've seen this year.)

Spring, with Prairie Crocus!

A treat today to find my first Prairie Crocuses of the year! There will be more in the next few days, as the ground warms under the April sun.

Sunset on the Night of the July Supermoon

Some nights, you will see beauty in all directions... Behind me, the July Supermoon was rising; before me, peachy pink clouds silhouetted the Abbey church against the sky.

Sunset on the Lake

As the sun sets, the water glows with apricot lightning over the pale moss of rippling waves.

Prairie Crocus on the Hillside

Because it's still Spring, even though the Prairie Crocuses have stopped blooming for another season...

Ring-billed Gull on a Rock

Spring, and the birds are returning north — and Ring-billed Gulls are flocking to Wascana Lake.


There have been times in the past when gulls have seemed merely annoying, with their screeching, squawking, food-stealing gall... But they, too, are a sign of spring. A welcome one.

Christmas Eve

Many years ago, I found glass reindeer ornaments in a gift shop in Seattle. They reminded me of the small glass reindeer that hung on our family Christmas tree when I was very young. I bought a pair and every year since, they've glowed high on my tree, above  cats' playful paws and dogs' wagging tails. One day, perhaps my kids will see reindeer ornaments for sale in a dusty corner of yet another gift shop, and remember this tree.
