What I was really able to appreciate this weekend was the beauty of Assiniboine park, a massive place, where there's a zoo, an English and sculpture garden, museums, a skating pond, and a giant stage where the Royal Winnipeg Ballet does demonstrations in the summer time.
Pretty flower I wish I knew the name of
Unfortunately, the museum was closed for an event that day ( a wedding I think). Got a look at the menu for the restaurant in there. Real swanky stuff. The fanciest food I've ever seen (even more so than La Cachet with Sweetbean in Niagara on the Lake)
The English garden was beautiful, even though the flowers haven't been put in yet.
Sculptures of bears by Leo Mol. This guy really liked bears apparently (There were at least six more sculptures)
Sat and had our coffee. As if I needed a second one at 3 p.m.
Mystery plant. So delicate and pretty.
The Mr. A.Y. Jackson. Didn't realize who it was because they had spelled out his name in full. That throws you when you're used to initials
The last time I visited this garden the gallery was closed too. One day, we will know what lies within! That and the gallery in the Pavillion!
Sun dials are so cool! This one was an hour behind by my watch. Or my watch was an hour ahead.
Rummaged around in my sock drawer and found this thing. It brought me back to the horrible time when my thumb got infected, and I had to do a lot of waiting in various hospital waiting rooms before finally being admitted into a community IV program for 5 days of antibiotics. Glad that's done! All my cuts will be disinfected to within an inch of their lives now.
