Another Outdoor and Watery Wednesday

It's Wednesday again and you know what that means...more photos of our beautiful Province of Manitoba!

First up, though, is a photo of the Red River behind the glorious Canadian flag.

Spring has arrived in the two weeks since we took these photos.  So they look pretty bleak, I'm afraid.

We are back in Lockport, Manitoba, in these photos.

The Red River with a seagull in the foreground.  You will see in the next photo what a seagull really looks like.  They are much prettier than I had ever imagined they could be.

And lastly, my tulips have blossomed!

I hope your Wednesday is as beautiful as mine is here in my corner of the world.

I never think to take a picture of the Seagulls -- maybe because they fly around here as much as the crows do.. However, now seeing this pristine feathery fish catcher -- I have changed my mind -- this little fellow is quite the looker now isn't he. Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog today.

All lovely photos.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday

Gret Gull photo. It is looking wise and judgmental. He is sure to be observing the surrounding beauty as reflected in your photos. Ann

Hi Cindy, thanks for stopping by the Tiki Hut to see my new digs.

You captured that gull beautifully! I miss my early morning walks on the beach and watching all the beach birds, so this pic made me smile.
