Foliage Throughout the Seasons in Alberta

I got an invitation from Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? to take part in a Photo Challenge called Travel Theme: Foliage. In my part of the world, foliage is plentiful in three of the four seasons.

Canadian Seasons have been described as: Six months of winter, and six months of poor sledding. These can be broken down into: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction season. To be more specific, the four seasons are: June, July, August and Winter.


In the spring, the patch of Ferns start out in tight rolls.


In the summer, our forest is home to the Cotoneaster bush.


In the fall, the poplars at the cabin are beautiful, especially when they prepare for their winter sleep.


In the winter, our forest of spruce trees are often covered with snow.
