Glory to God in the Highest

 
 
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

...A little weathered and worn,
but these bright little faces
keep blooming in December....

Red Barn


Perhaps not charming,
but attractive,  crisp, cheerful....
and a tractor to match....
 
...and reflective mud puddles....

Sun Sparkles


Late afternoon yesterday,
the sun peaked out
for some precious moments....
 

 
...and created magic
with our Japanese Maple....
 

...Sparkling raindrops contrasting with
the remaining leaves.

Bracken Fern

 
I was intrigued by fading colour of this Bracken Fern
along the road....
 

...the creamy white
was a startling contrast
to the grey skies and dark forest.

Barn - Dairy on Campbell


... I snapped this photo (above) of the moody sky
 last week,
 and on the right of the photo is ...


...the same farm I photographed in October
on a beautiful clear day...
 

...I was amused by all the round bales...
and realized that there is still quite the stack of bales
on the latest photo ( top)...

Trumpeter Swans

 
 
Trumpeter swans come to visit the valley
every winter...
 
 
...where once they were
on the endangered list...
 
 
 
..now there are many...
 
 
 
and we enjoy their trumpet-like honk....

Waterfowl

 
The path lead us to the trout pond
in St Johns Conservation Area ( ON)...
 
 
...where these Canada  geese
make their home...
 
 
and the ducks,
when they watched me approach said, 
"We are out of here!"

Hardwood Forest

 
Like a monochrome...
 
 
...the foliage of the hardwood forest of
the St Johns Conservation Area, in
the Niagara Escarpment (ON)...
 

...creates a carpet
 on this heavily rooted trail.
