Spring and Clouds

A sure sign that we are heading into spring...
...puffy cumulus clouds on a sunny day.

Cold and Distant

Along the Vedder River Dyke,
the fresh snow on the distant mountains
look cold and forbidding....
...and so beautiful.

A Solemn beach

The local beach on a rainy winter's day...

...quiet and beautiful in it's solemnness,...

...the water pockmarked by the rain.

Blocked Trail

On our trail run this morning,
we had to clamber over these two
 tall trees which had fallen and
 blocked the trail right over a creek crossing. 
We used the slippery limbs to climb over and still kept our feet dry.
The creek was much larger than usual because of all the rain we had this past week.

A view through the trees
 as we headed back toward the town of Cultus below,
faintly visible in the center of the photo.

My Garden- Winter Heath

 Heath is blooming in my garden...

....and is putting on a fine display...

See the water droplets tenaciously hanging on the delicate flowers...

Different varieties, different colours...

We have had large amounts of rain,
with still more to come.
Lots of signs that spring is imminent.

My Garden - Blooming Inspite of the Snow

Even after a snow storm
the Lenten Rose cheerfully
keeps on blooming.....

...and the moisture loving moss
remains a brilliant green...

...and the pots are waiting for spring.   :  )
Our snow has almost all disappeared now...
...hopefully spring is on it's way.

Another Snow Fall

After last weekend's snowstorm,
pretty much all the snow had melted...
and the temperatures  
were mild...

...until this weekend,
when we had another snow event....
A large amount of snow fell on Sunday,
changing to freezing rain
and then just rain.
Thank you for visiting!
