Beautiful Day for a Walk

A couple of days ago, it rained all day – FINALLY.  With the sun now shining and the moisture from that rain, everything is looking so green and beautiful now.  Amazing that it took until the middle of May before we got the April showers this year. This morning, I grabbed my camera and took… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

Narcisse Snake Dens

The Narcisse Snake Dens are about an hour’s drive north of Winnipeg.  I live in the south of Winnipeg, and it took almost an hour of city driving before I reached the north of Winnipeg, so it was a bit longer for me to get there.

A… Continue reading Pelicans

It’s Melting

We have had a few days in a row where temperatures have stayed above freezing at night and gone up to the high teens during the day, so finally we are seeing lots of bare ground and the ice is pretty much gone from the rivers.  Lakes still have ice, but not strong enough to… Continue reading It’s Melting
