A few days ago, I decided to head to Assiniboine Park and specifically to the English Garden/Leo Mol Sculpture Garden in the hope of finding Hummingbirds and/or Indigo Buntings. I did manage a few photos, but did not see any Hummingbirds or Buntings. A couple of days earlier I had seen the elusive Indigo Bunting… Continue reading Assiniboine Park
After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl
On a Facebook page for Manitoba Birds, I have seen so many people getting amazing photos of the beautiful little Hummingbirds that come here for the summers. I haven’t had any luck over the years, at getting decent photos of these adorable and very quick little birds. Many years ago, my Dad took a lot… Continue reading An hour in the English Gardens
I will warn you in advance that the pictures are not great and I obviously need more practice on moving birds, but I did diversify a bit, so the ones other than birds aren’t too hard to look at.
I am often in the Assiniboine Park because I volunteer at the zoo, but I seldom go into the English Garden, which is right beside the zoo. Yesterday, I was early for my shift and decided to spend the extra time in the garden. I only had my phone with me, so the pictures are… Continue reading English Garden at Assiniboine Park
The last few weeks, people have been posting pictures in a Manitoba Bird page on FaceBook that I follow. They indicate they are finding Indigo Buntings in the English Garden in Assiniboine Park. I have never seen one of these birds and decided to head there with my camera and see if I could find… Continue reading English Garden/Leo Mol in Assiniboine Park
Every morning I head over to the hospital to visit with my mother who is recovering from her broken shoulder after a fall in August. Today, my brother Doug and his wife Erin from B.C. were going to be visiting with her at lunch time and I decided I would return to have lunch with… Continue reading English Garden – Assiniboine Park
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
The English Garden and the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden are beside the duck pond and the Park Cafe, which is inside the Qualico Family Centre at Assiniboine Park.
Everyone knows Tulips. I was going to say knows and loves, but although most people love Tulips, I can’t say that everyone does. I guess I really can’t even say that 100% of people even know Tulips. 🙂 Tulips come in many different colours and types. Just in my yard I have 3 completely different… Continue reading Tulips
