Recent days have seen Mother Nature becoming gently emotional.
Today is the first of the lengthening days that will take us to the longest day of the year in six months.
A spectacular beginning was provided this morning as overnight, Mother Nature coated everything in white.
This is a section of Four Mile Creek shortly before it enters Trout Lake.
Every once in a while Mother Nature allows us to see one of her gifts.
It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it is spectacular!
Mother Nature assembles another masterpiece.
Actually this photo was made on Spring Day 1.
Last year Trout Lake was ice-free on May 1.
About a month of winter to go if we’re lucky!
However, Mother Nature can do what she pleases.
Mother Nature is a master snow sculptor.
This is a snowdrift formed by the wind off One Mile Bay.
So this morning I went out to see the Earth.
We still have a long way to go!
The view from my shore this morning.
Mother Nature is playing an April Fool Joke?
The surface of the snow has a very sensuous appearance.
I love the smooth elegance of the transitions.
Mother Nature is an accomplished sculptor.
In March the light returns and some really lovely snow falls.
Only Mother Nature can lay a carpet this perfect.
This trappers cabin is near our place. The roof is long gone but when it was built it was quite cozy and functional inside. The friend who owns the land built it in 1972 with the aid of a French Canadian wood carver of his acquaintance as an exercise in woodcraft. It served his children as a memory maker and fun place to be.
I have visited many times over the past years as it has slowly been deteriorating. A couple of years ago the top half of a hemlock tree fell on it and contributed to its derelict appearance.
It will be some time before it’s all on the ground but Mother Nature doesn’t own a watch.
Darndest thing about reforestation projects. They are not natural.
Mother Nature loves random.
Humans not so much.
Today it snowed.
Spring is on hold for a day or so.
