Incredible to see such masses of P. patens!

You're welcome, Malcolm!

I have decided to try to establish P patens at my cabin...  I had several seedlings growing, however almost all died of lack of water during the Easter holiday  :'(

How disappointing, Trond!

Where there is still unbroken prairie (not that there is much), this sort of density of plants is not unusual!

It's wonderful to have this bit of unbroken prairie, in the middle of the city, surrounded by residential streets!

Great to see these :) I was hoping to try to get east to find some in flower this spring, not sure if I'll get the right timing....

Looks like spring has finally hit the Calgary region!  My vulgaris are just starting to show wee buds, so I am quite far behind.

As of today, we still have snowbanks in many places, and --mosquitoes!

Snow, what is that ;D ;D ;D

Don't be angry, I am just teasing. Next winter we shall have a tough one I have read. The sun is diminishing :o The sunspot activity is rather low although it is slowly increasing now after a two year delay.

Every winter is a tough one...lol
I just need to try to scrounge some money together for at least part of our firewood, and something to help with moving snow---then I might be able to sit inside by the fire and 'enjoy' the season instead of working to exhaustion for 5 months...lol

Maybe your health is better off with hard work than with noising machines and badsmelling exhaust! Snow outside, fire at the fireplace, a glass of red wine or something on the rocks - that can't be healthy ;D

No danger, Trond-- I will have lots of hard work to do, no matter what! But I think an occasional day of rest is healthy too?  ;) When the snow shovelling is 6 months, and woodcutting is ..10?.... 
I've still been doing some snow shovelling (even yesterday) to help snow banks in shady places go away (to let the driveway dry up!) and still large expanses of snow in some other shady areas I don't care about....
No wine here, just coffee...lol
