a snowy weekend


The first and second days of December brought us the first major snowfall of this winter thanks to a cold front from the Yukon. The brightness and whiteness was lovely while it lasted, putting us into the Christmas mood a little.


Erika was staying over and put up all her gorgeous paper snowflakes on our windows.


I like the pattern of the snow on our stone driveway,


the austerity of this snow-covered park bench on bricks,


and the design and shapes on this beach.


I felt sorry for this huddled up heron (is it a Great Blue?) sitting on our neighbour’s railing.

A battle of weather fronts began this afternoon with the tropical front from Hawaii winning out and bringing rain with rising temperatures. How disappointing. Monsoons overnight, it’s going to be a mess tomorrow morning, with a flood watch as well! Snow hit most of Canada so winter has arrived.
