Sunday Trees – April 25, 2021

….even though spring officially arrived over a month ago Mother Nature had to bless us with one more snowfall

Deep in the woods the snow hung around a little longer

New Flower (April 21, 2021) – Spring Flowers Under a Blanket of Snow

this snow literally came down overnight

Even for Southern Ontario in Canada, snow this late into April is not the norm. It’s ironic that we had so little snow this winter and Mother Nature decided make up for it well into spring. Four hours later all this snow has already disappeared.

Going for a Winter Evening Walk

….during a snowstorm

Well I guess I’m exaggerating a bit but it was snowing and it was cold. When my husband said he wanted to walk in the snow and take some photos of the street I quickly put on my coat so that I could join him. I needed some more steps to get to my 10 000 step goal anyway.

It’s nice seeing some of the Christmas lights still on. This year people have decided that we need more colour and light in our lives because of COVID so many homes are still brightly lit in the evenings. It’s quite pretty against the snow.

Finally A White Christmas

after predicting a 20% chance for a white Christmas the weatherman was wrong again

Christmas Eve started out with rain, mild temperatures and grey skies. It looked like we would be having yet again another green Christmas. After our Zoom Christmas with the family in the afternoon I packed up a few more gift platters for the neighbours. The sun had just set as i set out to make my deliveries and looking up into the street lights I could see that the rain was changing to snow. All of a sudden everything seemed that much more Christmasy.

The next morning everything was covered with a clean white blanket of snow.

Frances and I went for a walk and came upon our first snowman of the season. Something was missing but I soon figured out that our little snowman had not been given a mask to wear during the ongoing pandemic. Problem solved.
