Flowers at Kildonan Park

Last year I was at Kildonan Park frequently while anticipating my hot air balloon ride, but this year I had not been there at all until this morning.  They have beautiful flower beds there and I decided it was time to take a look (and some pictures). There happened to be a wedding party taking… Continue reading Flowers at Kildonan Park

Assiniboine Park Conservatory

On the same day that I went to Fort Whyte Alive and saw the adorable fawns, I also went to the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park.  I still had time to kill before the volunteer event at the zoo there. The Conservatory is such a nice place to spend some time – the air is fresh,… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Conservatory

Flowers

There are some residents in my apartment (all ladies I believe) who look after the flower beds around the building.   Everything is looking so pretty that I went around and took lots of photos this morning.  🙂   These ladies do a wonderful job of providing the colour during the summer months.  I will have… Continue reading Flowers

Unfortunately, it was just the usual critters and not actually many of them. Elephant, Bushbaby, Zebras, Impalas, Wildebeests, Giraffe and then Warthogs as we were almost back at camp. The only… Continue reading June 1 – Orpen

May 8 – Pretoriuskop

The moon was beautiful last night with some clouds floating by it. I got an extra early start this morning after waking up at 4:30 am, but I had a great sleep, interrupted only by the sounds of Hyaenas and lions about a 1/2 hour earlier. I could hear cars going by shortly after 5:00… Continue reading May 8 – Pretoriuskop
