A Little Walk

After a visit with my Mom in the hospital this morning and while my laundry was in the dryer, I decided I had time for a quick walk.   I had to be back before the dryer was finished, because someone had a load beside the washer waiting for me to get mine finished and into… Continue reading A Little Walk

Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

I’ve gone through the English Gardens & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park in the summer before, but this is my first time going in the winter.  There are no flowers (of course), but the sculptures are still here.  It was a beautiful morning to wander around a bit with a temperature of +3C… Continue reading Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

Flower & Moving Updates

My tall Iris flowers are now out.  The only problem with the tall Iris plants is that they go down in the wind, and wind is certainly not uncommon here. I got a couple of pictures a few days ago and then I took one picture this morning after they were mostly on the ground.… Continue reading Flower & Moving Updates
