Pictures from North Glenmore Park walk!

Our Druidwalk on May 28th was at North Glenmore Park on a beautiful sunny day.   This park seems huge,  with lots of walking trails,  both along the edge of the Elbow river and the Glenmore Resevoir, as well as along the manicured lawns and some less than manicured natural areas.        
North Glenmore has something for everyone.






 The park is a perfect place to see the oxbows in  Elbow River feeds and where the river feeds into the Glenmore Reservoir.





Wolf Willow













Purple Vetch


There is a long flight of stairs down to Blue Heron picnic site.   I think this would be an amazing spot for an evening get together!
















Buffalo Beans

Saskatoon Berry Bushes

May 28th at North Glenmore Park is our next Druid Walk

We will meet in Parking Lot N  at North Glenmore Park on May 28th at  10:00 am.

Here is a link to a map: Parking Lot N North Glenmore Park

As usual,  dress for the weather, bring your water and walking stick and we will walk through the park for about an hour, followed up with a tea/coffee or lunch nearby.

I hope to see you all there!


Some Pictures from the Nose Hill Druid Walk April 23.


We started our walk at the North East edge of Nose Hill Park,  on a wet but not rainy morning.
As you can see, I took lots of pictures as we walked up and down the hills.

It always feels right to start a walk through an open gateway like this one.


The crocuses were starting to bloom, but they looked like they were really waiting for some warm sunshine to coax them open.




Not very many leaves were out yet, but you could see the buds just about ready to burst open.  Come on sunshine!





There was lots of moss and lichen to see.













 We were not alone, and came across a few deer.   White tail or Mule deer maybe.




















These are little wee pussy willows.






The sun started to come out near the end of our walk.


All in all it was a wonderful morning walk in the fresh air, and sunshine (at the end)   We followed up with a nice lunch in a nearby pub... and of course, sharing stories.

Our Druid Walks are a great way to keep in touch with friends between the 8 Ceremonies, and meet new people interested in the Druidic Path.

With many blessings,
feather
