Sweet Alberta Memories. I often miss the aspen parkland of North Central Alberta where I grew up and lived most of my life. The resonant musical sound of the breeze through the poplar leaves will never leave my heart. This spot (my backyard acreage in Sherwood Park) was my home for ten fabulous. years. Grateful! Have a great day everyone! Make the most of each moment. Our moments go by quickly. Life is good.
