Beautiful Day for a Walk

A couple of days ago, it rained all day – FINALLY.  With the sun now shining and the moisture from that rain, everything is looking so green and beautiful now.  Amazing that it took until the middle of May before we got the April showers this year. This morning, I grabbed my camera and took… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

Mother’s Day Run

It was a beautiful morning this morning – perfect for a little stroll. I headed out for a walk along the Seine River, but hardly got over to the other side of the river before finding out that there is an annual Mother’s Day Run on my path.  The run had just started so no… Continue reading Mother’s Day Run

A couple of  days ago I wondered if I had seen a Beaver, but the… Continue reading A Walk Along the Red River

House Sparrow

Chester and I only found 1 Canada Goose on our walk along the Red River yesterday morning.  But, when we returned to our yard, there was a House Sparrow chirping away in the plum tree in the back yard.  I’ve never really taken a picture of a House Sparrow, so I snapped a couple.  He… Continue reading House Sparrow
