Wild Blue Flax Along Saskatchewan Roadsides

One of my favourite Saskatchewan flowers is Wild Blue Flax.

These pale blue prairie wildflowers, with lines of darker purple and oh-so-close to white, appear in June and July, waving on their slender stalks in the slightest breeze.

Here are three recent pictures of Wild Blue Flax that make me happy....

I remember seeing these delicate wildflowers dancing along the shoulder of grid roads near St. Peter's Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan.

Okay, maybe it's my eyes or imagination --
but these two Wild Blue Flax stalks really look like dancers!
