Chickadees Found Me

If you’ve been with me for awhile, you’ll know that I made a  Chickadee friend at my last apartment, where I had a balcony to put food out for him.  He was affectionately called St. Peanut because in one of his first pictures  his head was bowed in front of a peanut. I don’t have… Continue reading Chickadees Found Me

Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

There is no doubt that I am going to miss this little guy when I move next week, so when St. Peanut decided to spend a few minutes here with a friend yesterday afternoon and again this morning, I took lots of pictures. Many of the pictures are far from perfect, since he continues to challenge… Continue reading Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

I decided to take a little drive through St. Vital Park… Continue reading A Drive Through St. Vital Park

Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2 continued

It seems amazing to me that I could be on a 2nd post for a day and I haven’t even had breakfast yet – but that is what happened on my 2nd day in the park this time. I was just leaving Graying Lake at the end of the last post, so there was the… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2 continued
