My dad used to take a group of his friends from church out on an annual wildflower walk in Kananaskis. He was an expert in knowing the names and legends of the local wildflowers. The group organized a walk today in his memory. It was beautiful and a wonderful way to honor him.

The boys. My dad used to love teaching them about flowers and photography.
One of the ladies came to me and asked if I knew the name of a certain flower they were looking at. I didn’t but I was so tempted to answer fireweed. It made me laugh and cry inside at the same time. When dad would take me out looking at flowers and we would come across one that he didn’t know the name of, we would both shrug and say fireweed.
It was a wonderful happiness moment to remember and honor my dad this morning.
