Flax and Canola Fields in Bloom

Just thought I'd share a few pictures that I took this week of local fields in bloom.  They're so beautiful!!  I think the blue one is flax, and the yellow is canola.  There's so much canola grown around here that the local farm and ranch stores has started pressing and selling locally grown canola oil.  Yum!!


  1. The flax is a beautiful blue! Does fresh canola taste different??

  2. Good for you! You caught the flax! : )
    I'm quite sure seeding is only beginning here. It's weird to see it all in bloom for you already!

  3. Southern Alberta (on the way to Lethbridge) will look just like that before too long...
