A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

I had a couple of things on my mind when I headed out this morning. So far I have not found the Cardinals in the English Garden or Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park plus I really needed a new pair of shoes. First was a quick stop at Starbucks to get a Chai… Continue reading A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

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

A visit to Bunn’s Creek Park and Trails

For the last couple of years, I’ve been hearing about Cardinals being seen around the Bunn’s Creek trails. Before that I had never heard of Cardinals being anywhere in Canada except Southern Ontario. This year on a Facebook page, I have seen plenty of photos of these beautiful birds taken at Bunn’s Creek in Winnipeg… Continue reading A visit to Bunn’s Creek Park and Trails

A Walk in between Rain Showers

Showers were in the forecast for all day yesterday and we had a big storm the night before, so I decided to stay in my own area to walk around.  Of course, I brought my camera and hoped that the rain would hold off until after I returned home. My first sighting was a man… Continue reading A Walk in between Rain Showers

Looking for Colour

I go on this little walk along the Seine River often, and many time I don’t even bring a camera – I just walk and enjoy the nature.  Today I brought my little camera to see if there is any colour left on the trees and bushes, while looking for critters and whatever else I… Continue reading Looking for Colour

Grey Squirrel

The squirrels are certainly busy little guys these days.  Thousands of acorns to gather up and store to eat later, along with dry grass to line and insulate their living quarters for the winter. I previously trapped and re-located a few of the Red Squirrels to get them out of my house, so the Grey… Continue reading Grey Squirrel

Grey Squirrels

Grey Squirrels are not as common around here as the Red Squirrels are and as far as I know, they always nest in trees instead of in peoples homes.  I certainly enjoy watching them whenever I find them playing. Yesterday I was able to watch 2 of the Grey Squirrels racing from tree to tree… Continue reading Grey Squirrels

Road Work

The little area where part of the street dropped, where I walk with Chester every day is showing signs that work might actually start one day soon.  Construction equipment, materials and signs were dropped off there sometime yesterday.  Of course, this might all just be in preparation for next spring – but I can hope… Continue reading Road Work

Grey Squirrel

We have 2 different types of squirrels that hang around my yard.  One is the little red squirrel and I have shown pictures of one of them before.  A larger grey squirrel was in my yard this morning and I took some pictures of him through the window.  It is a dull cloudy day, so… Continue reading Grey Squirrel
