Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

I decided I needed a bit more of a walk than I had voting yesterday, so decided to head over to Assiniboine Park, to walk and take photos. First stop was the English Gardens. I waited (as I avoided the sprinklers) for the Hummingbird to return, but she didn’t. So, I left and headed over… Continue reading Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

I headed back to Winnipeg after stopping at Captain Kennedy House and since I was on Main Street, it was convenient to stop at Kildonan Park for my last stop of the day. I always love to walk through & take photos of the gardens near the beginning of the park. Then I moved over… Continue reading Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

It is very hot here now with temperatures in the hi 30C range. Right now it is starting to cool off and it is 35C (with a “feels like” 39C) We set a record high yesterday and today is similar, except that we are expected to end the day with a thunderstorm. I really missed… Continue reading An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

A Morning at Assiniboine Park

Even though I often walk at the same places, each trip is different because different critters & birds might show themselves. This trip certainly had some of the birds that I’ve been wanting to find for some time. A Canada Goose family was in front of me and I noticed how large the Goslings are… Continue reading A Morning at Assiniboine Park

A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

I had an errand to do in the St. Vital area, so decided to take my camera and head for St. Vital Park for a walk. It was a beautiful morning. Although I walked around the entire park, most of my photos were taken at the pond. It is a really nice pond that has… Continue reading A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to head over to the English Garden in Assiniboine Park to see if I could find any Hummingbirds or Indigo Buntings. I did see one hummingbird, but it didn’t stay long enough for a photo – and I didn’t see an Indigo Bunting, but think I heard one. So – I… Continue reading The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

I’ve gone through the English Gardens & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park in the summer before, but this is my first time going in the winter.  There are no flowers (of course), but the sculptures are still here.  It was a beautiful morning to wander around a bit with a temperature of +3C… Continue reading Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

St. Vital Park

I have lived fairly close to St. Vital Park for about 1/2 my life, but it is not a place that I ever go unless someone has scheduled an activity there (which doesn’t often happen).  I think I was at a toboggan party there many years ago and a picnic put on by one of… Continue reading St. Vital Park
