We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park
After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home
It is always a beautiful drive along River Road and as the name suggests, it does follow the Red River all the way. In contrast, we also have a River Road in Winnipeg, where you never actually see the river although it is quite close to the Assiniboine River. The only stop I made was… Continue reading Along River Road
After breakfast yesterday I drove over to the Cedar Bog trail for a little longer walk than I had at Prairie Winds trail. The temperature was warmer for this walk than the earlier one. That ended this trail and tomorrow we will continue with my 3rd walk.
I was awakened early this morning with machinery sounds as workers were outside my window working. I was surprised they were working this early as it was before 7:00 am – but they were. I rolled over to try to get back to sleep – but it was too noisy, so I finally decided I… Continue reading Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting
I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive
The building (The Leaf) is still under construction, but is moving along. I thought it would be nice to visit the gardens after they have had the summer to grow and mature. Obviously, many of them will continue to grow over the years, so it will be constantly changing. I parked in the zoo parking… Continue reading A Late Summer Visit to the Gardens at the Leaf
As I was driving along River Road, I passed Captain Kennedy’s House and Gardens and I decided to park and walk around there. One more stop on the way home and that will be posted tomorrow.
This morning I wandered around the Diversity Gardens at the Leaf in Assiniboine Park. I had been there the day before it opened to the public and took several photos. Unfortunately I was not at home and was using my little laptop. The laptop updated several times over a few days and is now messed… Continue reading Diversity Gardens at The Leaf
Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop
