Wild Rose Country

Spring has now turned into summer at Bunchberry Meadows. Our walk changes quickly, week by week as if in a headlong rush to escape the inevitability of autumn and winter.

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. Lovely images Allan. What a fabulous tree (Rosy Glow`) and wispy low hanging clouds (Misty Morn). I would never have guessed that the silhouette was a Robin, maybe that’s just the non bird expert in me. I wouldn’t mess with the raven.

    1. I think your comments were on A Better Morning post. I liked the misty look of that scene as well. Many Aboriginal artists base their works on just such a scene. I only knew it was a robin, because I saw it fly in. I am more of a bird brain now, since my kids got me a wild bird book. I much prefer ravens to crows. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

      1. Oops. I think I had too many tabs open as I like to read on one and comment on another in real time. May have gotten them mixed up. Don’t know why but on your posts I am unable to read and comment within one single tab through the reader. Yes, crows are the worst and failed to charm Edgar Allan Poe. That’s good enough for me.

      2. No worries. It was good for me to have to think on a Monday AM. As to not being able to read and comment on reader, I have found this on several sites. Not sure if WordPress is “un hancing” the user experience or what is going on. Cheers.

    1. So much character bark in this forest and the Meadow Blazing Star flowers are everywhere right now. They are definitely a favourite with the bees. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
