January Buds and Greenery for Macro Monday

after such a mild January it’s not surprising that the shrubs and vines are confused

Since these photos were taken last week we’ve had snow but the temperatures are just hovering around freezing. Later this week that will change when the temperatures are suppose to drop to -24 degrees celsius.

RDP – Solstice

thanks to Ragtag Daily Prompts for today’s word ‘Solstice’ https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2022/12/20/rdp-tuesday-solstice/

Winter solstice 2022 in the Northern Hemisphere will be at 4:47 p.m. on Wednesday, December 21, Eastern Standard Time. It is also the first official day of Winter. Many parts of Canada have experienced winter weather since October and back in mid-November we had a blast of snow but for the most part winter hasn’t really started here. The temperatures are, however, finally starting to drop and any precipitation we get in the next week should be in the form of snow.

London in the UK has already experienced more winter than we have here in Torontoview from our son’s flat

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – March Spring

….it may be spring according to the calendar but winter isn’t done with us just yet

The beginning of March brought so much hope for an early spring but the last few days of March had other ideas. Here are a few of the things I’ve witnessed in the last four weeks.

These photos appear in the order that they were taken.
