Flowers at Kildonan Park

Last year I was at Kildonan Park frequently while anticipating my hot air balloon ride, but this year I had not been there at all until this morning.  They have beautiful flower beds there and I decided it was time to take a look (and some pictures). There happened to be a wedding party taking… Continue reading Flowers at Kildonan Park

Assiniboine Park Conservatory

On the same day that I went to Fort Whyte Alive and saw the adorable fawns, I also went to the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park.  I still had time to kill before the volunteer event at the zoo there. The Conservatory is such a nice place to spend some time – the air is fresh,… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Conservatory

Assinboine Park and Conservatory

We have had more than enough snow and cold for the last few weeks, so yesterday I decided to head for the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park.  It has been a long time since I went through there and the plants and flowers are amazing to see. First some park pictures as I drove through.  As… Continue reading Assinboine Park and Conservatory
