There are some things that are just meant to be enjoyed at a certain time day or year. For example – football and Thanksgiving are a match made in heaven, hot chocolate always tastes sweeter in the dead of winter – and when it’s 30 degrees, nothing compares to a patio marg and some guac.

Sadly though, Canada’s sunny season and everything that rolls in with it, come and go in a blink of an eye, so it’s important we make the most of it! Not sure where to begin? How about at one of these magical Alberta Sunflower fields in the golden hour?
