White Arctic Wolf

I took this photo of this beautiful White Arctic Wolf at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

According to the City of Edmonton website, “Arctic wolves are well adapted to survive subzero temperatures, up to five months of darkness and weeks without food. To blend in with their surroundings, they are usually white with grey or brown undertones.”

Wild Rose of Alberta

Here is a beautiful, pink rose bush that represents the symbol of Alberta. I took the photograph in Elk Island National Park near Edmonton.

According to the Indigenous Teaching and Learning Gardens website, the Indigenous used the wild rose as follows: “Used medicinally to treat bee stings, colds, blindness and diarrhea. The rose has also been used in ceremonial medicine. Rosehip rinds were eaten.”

The Alberta Legislature is found in Edmonton. According to Wikipedia, “The Alberta Legislature Building was built between 1907 and 1913 in the Beaux Arts style at the same time as the much larger Saskatchewan and Manitoba legislative buildings by architects Allan Merrick Jeffers and Richard Blakey. Montreal architect Percy Nobbs helped with the final revisions.”

Forest of Birch Trees

Forest of Birch Trees

These are beautiful birch trees found in the forests of Elk Island Provincial Park near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “Birches have spiritual importance in several religions, both modern and historical. In Celtic cultures, the birch symbolizes growth, renewal, stability, initiation, and adaptability because it is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions with casual indifference.”

This is a Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree found at the Kurimoto Japanese Gardens in Edmonton, Alberta  part of University of Alberta.  I like the way the branches hover over the water.
