A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

The provincial parks in Manitoba closed all the trails in their parks earlier this spring due to the extreme dry weather and the possibility of fires. There were several very large and out of control fires burning in the province at that time. After we finally got a few days of rain, the trails are… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to make a return trip to Sturgeon Creek. I could hear lots of birds singing, but was unable to get any photos of any of them – other than some swallows who I am guessing are Bank Swallows that nest along the bank. The photos of the swallows are not great,… Continue reading Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

A Couple of Walks in Assiniboine Park

I just barely cleared the entrance… Continue reading A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Walk in the Woods

It was such a beautiful morning, that I decided it was time to take a walk along the Seine River behind my apartment.  I headed along the path to the pedestrian bridge nearby. Just before the bridge was a bunny in the grass.  Then a picture of the river from the bridge and a closer… Continue reading A Walk in the Woods

Mock Orange

I may have mentioned this here before (probably every year about this time), but I really love my Mock Orange when it is in bloom. I bought and planted this bush many years ago and every year it supplies me with it’s beautiful flowers. It is in bloom again and I have pictures for you. … Continue reading Mock Orange
