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

Snowy Day Thoughts

100% Humidity

My little weather icon on my desktop tells me that the humidity is 100% – but rain is not in the forecast for today.  It is only 16C right now – but that humidity seems to make the air so thick that it was harder to walk than usual.  The sky is full of dark… Continue reading 100% Humidity

Little Bird Day

Chester and I had an early walk this morning and it was already 13C with very little wind and a beautiful sunny sky.  🙂  We went for our walk along the Red River before either of us had breakfast and before I turned a computer on. Lots of little birds were singing to us and… Continue reading Little Bird Day

Long Weekends are Good

I guess not everyone gets a long weekend as often as I will be getting them this year, but I’m going to enjoy them anyway.  I have no vacation plans so am taking my days 1 at a time to make long weekends and by skipping a few weeks, I can manage to spread my… Continue reading Long Weekends are Good
