I did not even check the temperature this morning when Chester and I went on our walk. I didn’t even check it when we got home and now around noon it is 27C with a predicted high of 33C and possible thunderstorms to follow. It was very pleasant for our morning walk, so I am guessing it was about 20C under a sunny sky with just a slight breeze. We saw a Mallard Duck family having their morning bath and a sparrow that I think is a Savannah Sparrow – but these little guys are so hard to know for sure.
I didn’t get any more done on my livingroom yesterday and I’ve heard that the Assiniboine Park Zoo now has a butterfly garden, so I expect one of my next weekend days will be spent there. They also have a new bird flight show that I will have to take in. I’ll make sure I have my camera batteries all charged up for those 2 new features. 🙂
The ducks seems to be enjoying themselves and paid no attention to Chester and I standing there watching them.
I’m not 100% sure of any of my sparrow IDs, but I think that might be what this guy is.
After my exercise class today, followed by the big breakfast at The Red Top, I came home to water my flowers. I felt like a bad flower mom when I saw how wilted the poor little things were. I seldom come or go from the front door and hadn’t realized how dry everything was. My impatience are what I see when I go out to get the mail and for some reason they were looking very good. But everything is watered now and hopefully they will recover from my neglect.
