Bon-bons for Bears (Flower Friday)

You know it’s spring when the bright yellow of the Skunk Cabbage, also known as the Skeena Lily, begins appearing in any areas where it’s wet and boggy.

According to dear-old-Wiki the Skunk Cabbage flowers attracts flies and midges whilst the roots are food for bears, eating them after hibernating as a laxative or cathartic. The plant was used by indigenous people as medicine for burns and injuries.

 

 

 

 

 

Swooping for Salmon! (WPC: Evanescent)

Blink and you could possibly miss that moment when an eagle swoops down, talons reaching into the water to secure whatever it spotted within its claws. It’s a very hit and miss moment – for both the eagle and the photographer, lol!

Evanescent is the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for this week. The description for evanescent from the Daily Post is soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

What a fox! (OWPC: Fox)

Early last month, Miss Fourteen and I attended a pottery painting class. Whilst I chose an owl piggy-bank to add to hubby’s owl collection, darling daughter chose this fox. Isn’t it sweet?

The rainbow forming a heart around her face and chest darling daughter painted is so gorgeous! Fox is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Well’s.

And it just so happens it’s my darling girl’s birthday today – where did those fourteen years go?

💖 Happy Birthday beautiful girl! 💖

Cream of the Crop (Travel Theme: Cream)

This scene of the early morning rays of sunshine lighting up the dandelion heads across a field in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, will stay with me forever. Such a glorious image to leave the island with.

 

This memory is definitely the cream of the crop when remembering our overnight stay on Prince Edward Island (pun very much intended, lol). Cream is this week’s Travel Theme Challenge from Where’s My Backpack.
