I See Leaves of Green

This photo was taken in September. It is looking east down Victoria Aveune under an archway of trees. I love all of the big trees that line the roads in this area, especially when they are full of leaves.

One little fact about Regina: Today, there are more than 300,000 hand-planted trees throughout Regina.

Memory of Warmer Days

Here is a picture that I took, (back in early October), of people feeding the geese in the park.

Here is a picture taken from my office window this afternoon. There was a blizzard warning today. Yesterday it was +6 degress Celsius and currently it is down to -28 degrees Celsius and feels like -46 with the windchill. I am glad that January is almost over and we are getting closer to Spring.

At the Greenhouse

The greenhouse is such a great place to go to escape winter; even if it's only for an hour.

Candy Cane Park

A little too chilly to play at Candy Cane park in this photo taken by my Mom. This is a great park in the summer to go to and have family day with a picnic lunch. They have bbq's and picnic tables set up with lots of open areas to play sporty games as well as the playground shown in the picture. Great summer memories.

The Plains Hotel

I have always wondered what stories this building would tell if its walls could talk.

The Plains Hotel on the corner of Albert & Victoria. (Picture taken with my cell phone, hence the fuzzy picture.)

Regina Armoury

The armoury was completed in March 1929. Over the years, the Regina Armoury has been used for many purposes other than military training: political meetings, musical and athletic events, industrial shows, and various other civilian activities. Perhaps the most outstanding event that was held in the armoury for many years was the annual armistice service, which was started in order to supply funds for the upkeep of the Soldiers’ Plot in the Regina cemetery.

The Regina Armoury continues to be the home of the Regina units of 38th Brigade Group: 10th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, Royal Regina Rifles, 16th (Saskatchewan) Service Battalion, and 16th Medical Company. Other organizations that use the armoury include the cadet corps and the Military Museum of Saskatchewan.

Snow Goggles

Once upon a time ago - these were used as snow goggles. I can't even imagine what those would be like to use during a blizzard.

This is a side view of the Regina Inn. It makes me think of a giant game board.

I will round out this week with a trio of photos taken by my Mom. This one is of the cityscape of downtown taken from Wascana park.

Trafalgar Lookout

Another photo taken by my Mom. This one is approaching the Trafalgar Lookout in Wascana Park. My Mom has a great eye; I really like the perspective of this shot.

This room of parliment in the Legislative building will soon be getting some updates. Looking at the chairs, you can tell that an update is long overdue.

There seems to be graffiti everywhere you turn. I am not sure of the meaning behind these specific markings, but every once in awhile I recognize what group they represent.

Windsurfing on the Snow

Windsurfing on a snowy field on the west side of the city. This looks like great fun; I would love to try this one day.

Winter Wonderland

Today there was Hoar Frost on all of the trees. It looks so pretty, but it is hard to capture it properly in a picture.

Little Troll

This building has little trolls all along the perimeter above the windows. It is quite neat, but also a little creepy.

Stuck at the Train Tracks

Waiting for the train to clear the tracks.

Bushwakker's Brew Pub

Another pub that I enjoy visiting. They brew their own beer and have won many international brewing awards. My favorite is a pint of Dungarvon, which is a Red Irish Ale. Very nice.

Queen in the Park

This statue is of Queen Elizabeth riding one of her favorite horses. It was dedicated to her on her last trip to Regina.

Regina, Saskatchewan is named after Queen Victoria, and is fondly referred to as the Queen City; regina is Latin for queen

McNally's Tavern

McNally's Tavern is one of my favorite spots to go have a pint and watch live bands. It is a nice spot in the winter to go to and cozy up by the fireplace and visit with friends over a couple of drinks.

Happy New Year!
