Wyldflower Wynd

All photos taken during our July 5, 2021 walk in Bunchberry Meadows/Tucker’s Field.

After our week long heat wave, we were worried that the wildflowers in Bunchberry/Tuckers may have taken a beating. Our fears proved to be unfounded as one wild flower variety’s season melded into the next. It seems there was always something in bloom here during spring and summer.

Out for a stroll along Wyldflower Wynd,

knowing not what new treasures we’d find.

Pink Alberta roses still in bloom,

filling the air with their fine perfume.

Orange tiger lilies, quite the surprise,

then yellow flowers, tiny in size.

Along trail edge, mushrooms translucent,

dainty canopies like tiny tents.

Royal purple thistles, bristling tall,

red wild raspberries, few and quite small.

Delicate blue blooms, like tiny stars,

scattered along path, both near and far.

White flower clump like bridal bouquet,

beautiful wild daisies swing and sway.

Pink roses replaced by red rose hips,

huge white puff balls with feathery tips.

Flowers may fade and green leaves turn gold,

But Wyldflower Wynd never gets old.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. I always thought that wildflowers are often underrated. They just grow. Anywhere and everywhere. And they bloom. A lot. What can be more beautiful than flowers growing wild and free? In times where humans take over the world and destroy more and more nature, there is not much place left for pollinators, and that’s why wildflowers are actually very important for the cycle of life 🙂 Thanks for sharing and have a good day ahead 🙂 Aiva

    1. I never knew there were so many different types, until we started walking in the forest. Sometimes, I wish I could sow my whole back yard in them just to enjoy the changing look. But, then I remember that many are weeds. Thanks so much for reading Aiva. Hope all is well. Allan
