Thank you for visiting Snowbird of Paradise. I am delighted that you have found my site. Please explore the various posts and read as many as take your fancy.
Snowbirds (aka Dark-eyed Juncos) leave Canada in the winter and return in the spring, and people who do the same are also called snowbirds. Years ago, I planted a Bird of Paradise shrub in a pot and put it out on my patio in California, I have combined the two “birds” in the title of this blog. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts about the things that come my way.
When I am in Edmonton I acknowledge that I am located on Treaty 6 territory, and I respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada. When I am in San Jose, I know and respect that I am on the aboriginal homeland of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe.
If you think you spot some inconsistencies between English Canadian spellings and American spellings, you are probably right. I should decide on one or the other but, like myself, my spellings tend to travel back and forth.
I will be happy to hear from you and to respond in the comments sections. If you would like to send me an email, please use the form provided here.
