took long walks yesterday and today…

yesterday I walked a different path, through Bruce Park, on the way to the English and Leo Mol Gardens at Assiniboine Park… 

okay, okay… it was so I could collect Poke balls at PokeStops for the Pokemon Go game… we ran out of them on Friday… can’t really play the game without them…

the Gardens were fairly quiet and I got a few nice pictures…

this section of the Garden is very formal in nature and everything is blooming right now…

a different view of the wild pond… still a quieter place as the Pokemon Go hunters don’t seem to be as interested in this area, thankfully…

was waiting for some photographers to finish… they were taking pictures of some gorgeously dressed Indian women… and caught this hummingbird, sort of, lol…

couldn’t leave without getting a shot of the women as they waited their turns for pictures… they looked like exotic blossoms in the Garden…

this morning I drove over to the Formal Gardens at the far corner of the Park… again, it was to collect items from the PokeStops…

it was quiet and beautiful…

there are many busts of prominent people as you walk down one side…

this is Nellie McClung… every time I circled past them the light would be shining on them differently… very cool…

the archway of trees is so peaceful and relaxing… was able to get a nice shot of the canopy before too many cars filled up the area…

a band and catering company were setting up for what looked to be a wedding…

it was a nice change from the flowery Gardens… the only issue is having to drive there as it is too far to walk there, then around it, and back…

but nice to discover some other options for my morning exercise… who knew that Pokemon Go would help me find new walking paths, lol…
