Philippe and our older daughter went out for a walk this morning, and she got some photos she said I could post here.
We've had a lot of rain in the last few days - with more rain while they were walking. Edmonton is split by the fast-flowing North Saskatchewan River. The last few years have been quite dry and, other than spring run off, the river is typically rather low.
Not at the moment!
Here you can see some of the taller bushes barely visible above the water's surface. The river valley is enjoying the moisture, though, looking like a lush, green jungle.
While crossing the bridge the above photo was taken from, my daughter also found this.
A pigeon nest with two chicks. The mother was nearby, keeping an eye on things. They were quite surprised by the next being in such a relatively exposed area.
Gosh, baby pigeons look... alarming! *L*
