Diversity Gardens at The Leaf

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

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

I hadn’t been to Fort Whyte Alive for a few weeks, so today seemed like a good day to head over there. They didn’t make it easy though since one of the roads I travel on to get there was closed – so I had to take a longer route. But, I made it there… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, so today was the day for a return trip. I left early and was there before any other cars were in the parking lot. As a result I did not see anyone at all, but I did find some birds and a Muskrat. I was glad… Continue reading A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

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

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

On My Balcony

First thing this morning, I made a cup of coffee and then sat out on my balcony to drink it. Of course, I had my camera with me, just in case any critters showed themselves. The one Petunia planter could use another plant or 2, so I decided to head over to the Superstore gardening… Continue reading On My Balcony

A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

A Day in the Life

Today I got to spend a few hours with my little buddy – Coconut! His family was going to be away for much of the day and as he is aging, he has developed problems with his eyes. He needs regular drops in each eye a few times a day. Of course, I was willing… Continue reading A Day in the Life

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

After my little mid-day break, I headed back out to see what I could find. Instead of going back into the park, I went south a bit after getting some information on lakes with a nice variety of birds along a road nearby. My first photo wasn’t a bird though. As I rounded a corner,… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

After leaving the Black Bear with hidden cubs, I returned to the Bison enclosure to head back to the highway. Of course, I took more photos of the Bison and when I saw a couple of Pelicans flying above, I took a photo of them too. On the drive back to the highway, I stopped… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3
