Hanging around the Apartment

I have been spending time getting things together for planting some flowers on my balcony. I picked up 3 railing planters and have them set up and filled with fresh dirt. Then I picked up some impatience to plant in the 2 square planters that I used at my last apartment and some petunias for… Continue reading Hanging around the Apartment

A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive a little later than I usually go. Normally I am there at opening, but it was about an hour after than when I arrived. The parking lot was almost full, so I knew there would be a lot of people in there and I thought about turning around… Continue reading A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

An Afternoon at the Zoo when I am not volunteering

I usually volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo about 3 time per week – but when volunteering, I can’t wander as I like and take photos – so it is nice to go on days when I can wander where I want. It is amazing how many people know who I am even when I… Continue reading An Afternoon at the Zoo when I am not volunteering

Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

There is a lot of good views of the critters in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in the winter. Most of the animals live in the climate that we have here and get much more active in the winter than in the summer, when they would rather find a shady place to sleep. I went there… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

A Walk in between Rain Showers

Showers were in the forecast for all day yesterday and we had a big storm the night before, so I decided to stay in my own area to walk around.  Of course, I brought my camera and hoped that the rain would hold off until after I returned home. My first sighting was a man… Continue reading A Walk in between Rain Showers

A Little Walk

Yesterday, I had absolutely nothing scheduled except for laundry, so after the laundry was done, I went for a walk along the Seine River.  I just brought my little camera that does’t have a lot of zoom, since it fits into my pocket. First thing I found was on a tree trunk just behind my… Continue reading A Little Walk

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

A Walk in the Rain

I had most of the day on my own Wednesday, since Angie had to work.  She gave me directions to a good place to walk so that was the plan.  It was pretty wet, but not raining when I woke up, so I headed out after breakfast. Of course, it started to rain within a… Continue reading A Walk in the Rain

It is Still Winter at Fort Whyte Alive

Last month Mother Nature tried to fool us into thinking we would have an early spring, but she soon brought back the winter weather.  So – winter activities have resumed as the ice has frozen on the lakes & rivers again.  The  Canada Geese stayed with us and are waiting for the weather to warm… Continue reading It is Still Winter at Fort Whyte Alive
