If I had a single flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden
This spring, the Crocus and Purple Avens, the harbringers of spring, have already come and gone to seed across the prairies. The Buffalo Bean is shining its last burst of yellow. May is coming to and end, and June roses are soon coming to bloom. In the Afforestation area, a single Siberian Crab Apple is blooming pale pink. The grove of Golden Elders, have also just about finished their blooming season. It has been a beautiful spring, the city gardens awash in the fragrance of lilacs.
What is new at the South West Sector Afforestation Areas? There are now addresses!!! City addresses, to communicate say a “grass fire” started from a bolt of lighting to emergency service personnel, to meet other skiers at the afforestation area or dog walkers at the SW off leash recreation area or to let others know where the Golden Elders are, or where you spotted a deer, there are now addresses!!!
Ian Williamson, MCIP, RPP, Senior Planner 21 of the City of Saskatoon Regional & Long Range Planning has sent out information in regards to Civic addresses to the afforestation areas within the southwest portion of the city.

Thank you very kindly!! This is so very, very much appreciated, indeed. “When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.” ~Tecumseh In this case, it is time to give thanks to the City of Saskatoon for addresses.
In the Afforestation Areas, please enjoy the spectacular scenery, and with the addresses, it is easier to communicate if you happen to spot the Western Meadowlark, or in which afforestation area, you walk past a June Rose, or saw the Golden Elder.
By the way the Golden Elders and the Siberian Crabapple are located at 241 Township Road 362-A!!!
Have a great week-end.
