A September Visit to The English Gardens

Back in early September,Steve,Kai and I went to Winnipeg for the day. We spent part of that day at the English Gardens. Kai was quick to spot the frogs in the Lily Pond.
This one is sitting and enjoying the sunshine.


This  froggy peeked though a broken leaf.


It was a cool day so some of the flowers had not opened fully,but still showed the beauty hidden in each flower.


Some of the Lilypads looked almost like molten metal,floating on the water.

In another part of the Gardens,the Hydrangeas were putting on quite a show.


The flowers were pretty,but this face was the most beautiful of them all.


Kai loved climbing on and posing with the sculptures.


One more shot of my favourite girl.

I hope you enjoyed this look back at our visit to the English Gardens.
I love spending time with Steve and Kai and the English Gardens are always a good choice in my mind.

  16. Looks like a great place to visit. I miss the convenience of visiting gardens when we lived in Chicago, the parks were filled with statues. I guess here we we have natural beauty at our convenience. Your granddaughter looks like she is having a wonderful time.
