Milk Thistle, I believe

Milk Thistle, I believe
Back into the archives for two of the three photos posted this morning. There are so many places I am longing to get back to, but just too busy still. Eventually, this should ease - at least I hope so. With all the camera problems I am/have been having…

On 21 September 2016, I left home in sunshine, but by the time I reached my destination south of the city, at the Saskatoon Farm, it was overcast and dreary. I can always find things to photograph there, including this sweet-faced angel.

This morning, I am posting three photos from my archives, all taken in June 2014. I just haven't been getting out and, on the very occasional time I have been out with my camera, there has been so little to photograph. As for Mountain Bluebirds, I have…

My daughter and I had a such a great day on 5 September 2017. She had a free day, so we decided to drive north-east of the city and visit the Pioneer Acres Museum. The day started off with seeing three perched Swainson's Hawks, which were a bonus. We h…

Normally, I don't go on any evening bird walks, but I had been meaning for ages to get over to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. It always feels like a long drive across the city, but I thought this particular bird walk, on 22 August 2017, would actually get…
