A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

The temperature wasn’t much over 0C this morning, but the sun was shining and I grabbed my camera and headed out. Now that I am back in my apartment, the temperature is at 13C – so not bad, and the sun helps too. As I strolled along an asphalt path in the woods along the… Continue reading A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to head over to the English Garden in Assiniboine Park to see if I could find any Hummingbirds or Indigo Buntings. I did see one hummingbird, but it didn’t stay long enough for a photo – and I didn’t see an Indigo Bunting, but think I heard one. So – I… Continue reading The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

My Plant Balcony

A little over a year ago I moved into a small apartment that had a little plant balcony. I couldn’t go on the balcony, but I could put plants on it. The balcony is about 25 inches wide and 57 inches long and there is a 3 foot step to get out onto it –… Continue reading My Plant Balcony

Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl

Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights

It has been extremely cold here and I don’t have any incentive to walk outside, so I decided that a return visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights would provide lots of walking space as well as a place for me to absorb more of the stories there. One of the nice perks of… Continue reading Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Back to the English Garden with my Camera

I will warn you in advance that the pictures are not great and I obviously need more practice on moving birds, but I did diversify a bit, so the ones other than birds aren’t too hard to look at.  

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

Meet Neko and Finnegan

As you may have noticed, I love all critters, so when I was asked if I could look after a couple of kitties, by just coming in a couple of times a day to give them food, water and some attention, I said yes. I went over and met the owner and the cats a… Continue reading Meet Neko and Finnegan

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
