Evening Meal

I'm no Rock Recipes, in fact I don't really enjoy cooking. But here is what I had for supper this evening. Honey glazed carrots, long grain & wild rice and baked salmon.

Downtown St. John's on a sunny but cold day. OK, I confess, these were taken yesterday morning. But it's been snowing and blowing most all day and I didn't go out.

The butterflies are back at the greenhouse in Bowring Park. Last year the insectarium in Deer Lake brought hundreds of butterflies to St. John's and they've done it again this year. I took tons of pictures this morning, it was hard choosing which ones to show, so I went with a variety.

Clear Day

A lovely clear day today but cold!!! I went for a short walk in the woods on snowshoes. I was hoping to find a geocache but I guess it was covered in the snow. Snowshoeing, trying to follow a gps and take pictures is not very easy.

Black Capped Chickadee

I try to keep the bird feeders filled in the winter. When I do I am rewarded with visits from chickadees, juncos, goldfinches, flickers and blue jays.

Kenny's Pond

In between cleaning and cooking for Easter dinner tomorrow, I managed to get out for a quick walk around Kenny's Pond this afternoon as it started to clear off. Well, as quick as you can go when you have to walk in other people's footprints in the snow.

Canada's Terrain

We flew home today. I didn't get any pictures of the Rockies because of cloud cover but I did get some cool aerial photos. I love the patterns in the land and the shadows from the clouds. The 2nd photo is of Lake Manitoba and the 3rd photo is Regina, Saskatchewan. It's just plunked there right in the middle of the prairies.
