There is nothing quite like prairie skies whether in Canada or the US.
The fields of grain are ripening for the harvest.
One can see for miles and miles.
Pop up rain showers are common there.
These photos were taken on the outskirts of Calgary, Alberta a couple weeks ago. We had nice weather but not summery hot like it was at home. At least we missed all the snow they got this week! I've seen a lot of photos of the snow - about 20cm. - in some parts and even in our daughter's yard! It was weird to see photos of trees and summer flowers laden with heavy wet snow. There was a lot of damage to trees, power lines, cars and buildings from falling limbs and trees. Also, the crops in the fields (as in the photos above) were really laden with the snow that may ruin the harvest. I'm thankful for the beautiful late-summer days we've had here since we got home.
I'm linking with Good Fences #25 at the "Run *A* Round Ranch Report" blog.
Have a great day!
