This is a nice plant taken at the Legislative Grounds this morning. It sat in most shade from this large tree. The blooms are darker in shade but a few are highlighted with a bit of sun. My research leads me to believe it is Salvia Nemorosa.
The out of focus pebble concrete makes a nice neutral background.
It was Canada's 150 birthday on Saturday. There was much to take in for the milestone celebration. I found this small flag in the community garden on my walk that day.
This was a nice find where kids had been drawing in the parking lot with side walk chalk. A heart, a kite and flowers were great subjects.
I love the large blooms. They strike me as soft and gentle. There have been several colors.
I love this image in that it is moody with the dark background with the pale bloom in the center. Having a bud is a bonus.
I managed to get his eye in focus but his beak is moving. There were quite a few around the feeder this morning with interruptions as folks were headed out of the apartment building on a regular basis.
I should have been out earlier.
I love yellow and the circle of the light sunk into the cowl for protection looked kind of cool.
To my amazement there are photos in some of the cirlces.
This is one of 5 art pieces commissioned for the Canada 150 celebration.
Transect is a glass and stainless steel structure, in the shape of a sphere, punctuated by blue circular glass panels featuring photographs of animal tracks, native plants and times in Alberta’s history.
There is a bit more information here.
Now that I know there are others I will have to direct my feet in that direction on coming mornings.
