A Walk in my Park

We have had unseasonably nice weather this past winter, and today, the start of Daylight Savings has been an amazing day. 
My sister and I went to Strathcona Park, which is one of my favorite parks in the city. There are walking trails all along the Saskatchewan River to follow as well as inner playgrounds and picnic areas to enjoy. 
The temperatures have been very warm lately. Today was 11 degrees celcius. They say it will be 16 degrees tomorrow, which for winter on the prairies is pretty warm. 
Most of the snow has melted, just the odd patch of ice here and there. 

It won't be green for a long while. Lots of browns around now. 
My sister says that it will always snow sometime in April, so we will enjoy this early spring now! 

An empty bird house just waiting for spring birds to take up residence.

This city we live in has the distinction of being the sunniest city in Canada, with an average of 300 sunny days each year We get a lot of warm Chinooks coming through and seem to miss the stormy weather systems that pass by on either side of the city.

So we get lots of bright sunny days and blue skies.  Lots of shadow shots to be had!!!

Resting spot on the retreating ice for the Geese.

Another nest in the bare trees for some bird to take over and live. 
Hope you enjoyed my walk in the park with me as much as I did.
