The Last of the Golden Fields

Our summer has been cooler than normal with lots of rain and a way above average number of tornados. Other parts of Alberta have been dry and there was major hail damage in other parts. Hope your summer is warm and sunny!

The best of the canola bloom is over. I always try to take photos of the canola and am happy with the few I took this year, all within a short distance from home. There seemed to be a lot more canola than I recall from previous years. Next up.....sunflower season!!!

Here are some images from this last month:
