One of my earliest memories of wildflowers is of a whole hillside covered in wild crocuses or pasque flowers, near Mazomanie, Wisconsin. These paintings were from my memories of a beautiful prarie park on the north side of Calgary, Alberta called Nose Hill Park, which was the only other place I've seen acres of wild pasque flowers blooming. It was a big place; a wild prarie hill area that was covered with pasque flowers in the spring. I walked there year round, day and night. Calgary spread across the prarie to the south but there, a few minutes walk from the city streets the smell of prarie grass and the feel of the wind could be found.

This is a Great Time for Coloring Books!

      Have you finished all the puzzles in the house? If you have a garden, it's time to get out and do the spring yard and garden work...
