If you’re not from the Canadian prairies, what you may see in the Spring is dirty and brown. But, when you are from the prairie, or you to take a moment to look, you see the return of the robin and his red breast, the blue of the sky reflected in the water of the recently melted creek, the gold of the warm sun bouncing off the rocks, the fresh green buds on the bushes and trees, and the dirt under the nails of the farmer turning last years’ yellow stubble to this years’ rows ready for seed. Follow those rows and imagine the colours of Spring on the Canadian prairies.
