Small birch by the roadside will eventually have bark that is all white.
In spring, water forms puddles. We’ve not seen this very often in the past four months and so it is new and different to those like me with very short memories.
This one was in my driveway. The bush across the road is reflected in it.
Art from the Treasure House (I like the term, Mike):
In his natural habitat.
Climbing the tree that holds the feeder!
Oak leaves are often left by the tree to hang for the winter and so do not fall to the forest floor where they would be protected from the weather by the snow blanket.
They will finally drop when Spring arrives with new growth.
Spring poked its head out earlier last week and then retreated.
These tracings in the snow are evidence of that event.
Folk Art on Cassells Street.
These toys help pass the Winter.
The cedar grove on Tower Drive.
Spring arrives soon.
The play equipment in Lee Park waits for the flood to recede.
Last week was warm enough to cause some melting.
Cold and snowing today.

Spring appeared early last week with mild temperatures for a couple of days. The water ran and snow melted.
Low parts of Lee Park became ponds.
We’re back into winter for the next week or so. No water running. Everything is frozen again.
