This week's #FloraFriday is a tree in the family Salicaceae, Trembling Aspen! This tree is likely familiar to you, as it is one of the most common trees in the Aspen Parkland Ecoregion where Edmonton is located. It is easily identified by its white powdery bark and petite heart shaped leaves. It can be short and twisted or tall and straight. The #TremblingAspen gets its name because the thin petioles, or leaf stems, cause the leaves to tremble in the wind. Trembling Aspen trees connect to each other in a network of roots that allow them to regrow very quickly after a wildfire passes through! Trembling Aspen is also known as Quaking Aspen, or Aspen Poplar. Photo by: Patsy Cotterill #AlbertaPlants #AlbertaTrees

These little white flowers were been spotted on the marsh at Pearce Estate Park during our marsh dipping program. White water crowfoot seeds are eaten by waterfowl that visit the marsh. .

End of summer days~
We had our first family camping trip in a looooong time and even though it was only for one night i think we’re all hooked on it again!

Check out these sweet pea growing by our trout pond. Its scientific name, Lathyrus odoratus, literally means very passionate and fragrant. This plant is one of the late bloomers showing their flowers in late summer to early fall. .

This week's #FloraFriday is a flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae, Veiny Meadow Rue! This species has separate male and female plants. It is a small herbaceous (meaning not woody) plant and it can be distinguished easily by its leaves, which look like many rounded bear paws on a stem. True to its name, the undersides of the leaves look very veiny. Don’t confuse it with close relative tall meadow rue! Tall meadow rue is in fact, taller than veiny meadow rue, and tall meadow rue has fewer lobes at the tips of its leaves. Despite being a flowering plant, the flowers of Veiny Meadow Rue aren’t very showy, and are a subdued green and purple. #AlbertaPlants

What is this? #albertagarden #growingnorth #gardenchat #weed #plant #albertaplants Found in my grandmas field? Is it a weed or a berry bush?

This flower is called Elephant’s Head (Pedicularis groenlandica). This plant is super cool because each flower looks like an elephants head!! A cool find in a sub-alpine fen in the Rockies. .
