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.”

Canada Geese on the Bend

Canada Geese on the Bend

The Icelandic River weaves and bends its way from Arborg all the way back to Lake Winnipeg. There were “zillions” of Canada Geese migrating and staying near their water supply. This is a black and white image that still captures the magnitude of many birds despite not being in colour.
