Last Stop on the Way Home

After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home

Along River Road

It is always a beautiful drive along River Road and as the name suggests, it does follow the Red River all the way. In contrast, we also have a River Road in Winnipeg, where you never actually see the river although it is quite close to the Assiniboine River. The only stop I made was… Continue reading Along River Road

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

Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

I was awakened early this morning with machinery sounds as workers were outside my window working. I was surprised they were working this early as it was before 7:00 am – but they were. I rolled over to try to get back to sleep – but it was too noisy, so I finally decided I… Continue reading Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

A Late Summer Visit to the Gardens at the Leaf

The building (The Leaf) is still under construction, but is moving along. I thought it would be nice to visit the gardens after they have had the summer to grow and mature. Obviously, many of them will continue to grow over the years, so it will be constantly changing. I parked in the zoo parking… Continue reading A Late Summer Visit to the Gardens at the Leaf

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 Unplanned Stop at Captain Kennedy’s House and Gardens on River Road

As I was driving along River Road, I passed Captain Kennedy’s House and Gardens and I decided to park and walk around there. One more stop on the way home and that will be posted tomorrow.

Diversity Gardens at The Leaf

This morning I wandered around the Diversity Gardens at the Leaf in Assiniboine Park. I had been there the day before it opened to the public and took several photos. Unfortunately I was not at home and was using my little laptop. The laptop updated several times over a few days and is now messed… Continue reading Diversity Gardens at The Leaf

A Few Days

I’ll start with a follow-up of Bowser’s 3rd try at Dog Dash. He did much better than the times before. He was still very stressed about the whole thing, but he was walking on the treadmill for most of the time. I could have booked another visit, but decided to just see how he did… Continue reading A Few Days

On My Balcony

First thing this morning, I made a cup of coffee and then sat out on my balcony to drink it. Of course, I had my camera with me, just in case any critters showed themselves. The one Petunia planter could use another plant or 2, so I decided to head over to the Superstore gardening… Continue reading On My Balcony
