Fig. 6.9 Trifolium pratense – Red Clover

8” x 9” Giclée print on paper

Saskatchewan is a province of extremes – cold winters, hot summers, broad horizons and expansive skies. The plants and animals that are native to this place, have been tested by Mother Nature and developed an amazing array of coping strategies to survive their environment. The six pieces in this collection explore a few of Saskatchewan’s many wildflowers and their relationship with the world around them. Unlike many tropical flowers, Saskatchewan wildflowers are small–tiny even. You must get out of your car, and sometimes even down on your knees if you want to see them. But their ability to adapt to and thrive in our harsh climate is astonishing, their symbiotic relationships with insects, astounding. There is inspiration and profound meaning to be had, if only we take the time to look closely.

The sweet scent of clover in the summertime brings back memories of long lazy days and evenings spent playing outside as a child. Clover, from the word “clava” – referring to a three-pronged club, is good fodder for livestock and a soil re-generator, because its roots are a host for certain bacteria that increase nitrogen in the soil. Only bees can pollinate clover, and are especially drawn to these blooms that are in shades of red. Dreaming of clover is said to bring good luck, which is perhaps, the origin of the phrase “sweet dreams.”
