Lake Nipissing Afternoon

Lake Nipissing has many moods.

Late in November come days when the wind is calm, the sky is tranquil and the light is wonderful.

This is the “waiting” time of year.

Quiet anticipation of events to come is in the air.

Waiting

In Summer, the kids swim off this rock at Sunset Point on Lake Nipissing.

These days, not so much action.

The ice will be here soon.

Waiting For Breakup

On the shores of Lake Nipissing, the ice is slowly receding.

Another week or two should see it break up.

The Last Few Days…

… have been interesting.

And productive too.

One must look around while waiting impatiently for spring.

Sometimes you miss stuff.

Spring Pond

The La Vase Portage Conservation Area is a neat place to visit. The trail passes beaver ponds while winding through mixed woodland and includes a nice stand of mature birch trees.

The snow is mostly gone, the ice is off the ponds.

Yesterday, this pond was waiting for the warmth of spring.

A week from now the greens will be well established and the activities of nature will have resumed.

For now, quiet and calm reign.

Spring Forest

The period of time in Spring between the disappearance of the snow and the arrival of the warmth.

Waiting for the explosion of growth that comes inevitably each year.

Spring

Everyone is impatient for Spring to arrive.

One year ago on West Peninsula Road this was the scene.

Looks very much the same this morning.

Granaries on the Alberta prairie.

Useful life spent and waiting for the inevitable.

Waiting

North Bay’s Railway Heritage waits patiently on its own little siding.

Looking a bit forlorn these days, Engine 503 will eventually find a home on the waterfront.

Waiting for the Others

Raking the lawn the other day made me notice the only two crocus (crocuses? crocae?) that have survived a planting made some years ago.

Crocus

I’m still waiting for other flowers to break out.

Perhaps tomorrow.
