An hour in the English Gardens

On a Facebook page for Manitoba Birds, I have seen so many people getting amazing photos of the beautiful little Hummingbirds that come here for the summers. I haven’t had any luck over the years, at getting decent photos of these adorable and very quick little birds. Many years ago, my Dad took a lot… Continue reading An hour in the English Gardens

The Move

Well, I have moved again. It is almost time to use No Fixed Address (NFA) to locate me – LOL. I went from living in my own home for over 30 years to 3 moves in the last 3 years. I started packing early for the move, since I would be away from home while… Continue reading The Move

English Garden at Assiniboine Park

I am often in the Assiniboine Park because I volunteer at the zoo, but I seldom go into the English Garden, which is right beside the zoo.  Yesterday, I was early for my shift and decided to spend the extra time in the garden. I only had my phone with me, so the pictures are… Continue reading English Garden at Assiniboine Park
