Cover Story

I knew we had a clematis clinging precariously to a trellis on our property, but as soon as I saw Jason Edmondson’s photo of the clematis chosen to be the July cover of the The Pender Post, I began to wonder about the lineage of the impostor in our garden.

Apparently June is a good month for butterflies but not so much for Research Department staff members.  We had a Zoom conference meeting with the Research people this week.  The R.D. staff members all loved the cover photo by Ewa Jarosinska, but when the “name the butt...

Last month, our Community Hall and its gracious welcome poles stood eerily silent on the days the Pender community would have marked the 20th anniversary of their completion. Back in April 2000, the community celebrated the culmination of 10 years during which a “can d...

In March we chose an official Spring cover.  As you may remember, I made some rather derogatory remarks regarding the fact that some parts of our country (the prairies from whence I came) were usually not quite ready to celebrate spring when the official “first Day of...

In the northern hemisphere, Spring 2020 officially arrives on March 20.  What could be more spring-like than daffodils for the Pender Post March cover?  My first Pender Island spring was seventeen years ago.  At that time I was immediately taken by the daffodils…Pender...

The Pileated Woodpecker, harbinger of winter?  Our cover bird is one unique and spectacular bird.  Its only problem is it hasn’t captured the imagination of enough people.  For example, Mr. and Mrs. Robin, harbingers of spring, the Stork family, harbingers of happy fam...

Our December cover photo is another beaut by Ewa Jarosinksa.  You may recall an earlier cover photo by Jarosinksa, the Blue Heron in prime spring mating plumage.  Ewa took that photo at the Otter Bay Ferry Terminal.   For December’s cover photo she found her subject at...

Our November cover photo was submitted by Shalene Upshall (née Linds).  Shalene lived on Pender as a child and took this photo a few years ago while visiting Pender.

We often try to kid ourselves that summer will last longer than it has in the past.  Again, this year so...

This month’s cover photo isn’t a photo.  Okay, the photo really is a photo but that designation seems far too simple.   The our cover features a photo taken by Kim Pollard of a painting Kim Pollard did from an earlier photo...by Kim Pollard. I know I know, why didn’t I...
