It’s Melting

We have had a few days in a row where temperatures have stayed above freezing at night and gone up to the high teens during the day, so finally we are seeing lots of bare ground and the ice is pretty much gone from the rivers.  Lakes still have ice, but not strong enough to… Continue reading It’s Melting

Looking for Spring

I went out for a walk along the Seine River (well, the still frozen Seine River), to see if I could find any signs of spring. There are lots of Canada Geese back here in Winnipeg, but I kind of suspect that they have teamed up with Mother Nature in this April Fools joke on… Continue reading Looking for Spring

Looking for Colour

I go on this little walk along the Seine River often, and many time I don’t even bring a camera – I just walk and enjoy the nature.  Today I brought my little camera to see if there is any colour left on the trees and bushes, while looking for critters and whatever else I… Continue reading Looking for Colour
