It’s all About the Iris

A bumble bee’s perspective of flowers (Iris) in our little English garden. The wind and heat has been hard on the flowers this season, so I thought I would preserve a moment in time for the delicate Iris bloom.

Emerging Beauty

Wascana Park in central Regina is a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike. There is just something exquisite about having a beautiful man-made lake in the middle of a major city on the prairies of western Canada.

Without a doubt, one of my favourite parks to cycle through, whether it be on a fixed-gear city bike, a road bike, or even a time trial bike enroute to the straight and flat highways east of Regina.

Early Morning Sunrise

I wonder,
If the sunrise ever looks down on our inhabitants,
And holds it’s breathe as the beauty of life overwhelms even that of the sky.

Cemetery Overlooking the Sea: Peace at Last

The various hues of blue and the other pastel colours within the scene make even a cemetery look almost inviting. The blue skies, the lush green lawn, the abundant warmth of the sunshine, and the roaring blue sea, create an almost surreal sense of peace in a place that has had a 300 year history of violence and war.

Burning Sky

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.               Psalm 19:1 NIV

The heavens declare the glory of God
And all of the world will join the praise
His wonders proclaim
The oceans and skies, lift up their voice
And all he has made will rise to bless
The King of all Kings…
