Balsam Root Time

Once a year the Balsam Root pops out absolutely everywhere in the Okanagan. Its beautiful yellow flowers decorate every glade and hollow. We had a miniature heat wave yesterday, and lots of good light for photos. I think it reached about 22 Celsius. Alongside these blooms come the myriads of white flowers of the Saskatoon bushes. So now with blossoms and leaves popping out everywhere, it's beginning to look a lot like Spring!
A detailed Photo of the Balsam Root can be found here.

You are certainly in big sky country. You must me at a higher elevation to have such a great blue sky.

A bit of warmth and colour makes the world seem a much better place :)
