Whether it is official or not,
winter is here, along with the white stuff and the icicles.
The temperatures are only around freezing,
so I was able to catch some falling drops...

Dawn Ice

The wind ruffled the small patch of open water, while the rising sun cast its golden light over the whole pond.
Getting closer, you can see the texture of the ice.
A different part of the pond, and the light has changed completely.

Yes, I know - I hate it too - but you cannot deny that the flowers are pretty!
It's the seed pods that get caught in everything, and are the very devil to take out.

The weather has been cold enough that the pond is frozen over.
I love seeing the way the ice forms.

Have you ever watched how quickly the bees move through the flowers? This one stayed still long enough I could capture her.

Skeleton Keys

Some of the keys I brought home from my father's collection.
He never walked past a key on the sidewalk...

I only got these images edited over the weekend,
and I had to share them!!

I love cleome blossoms.
They are such an odd shape, and so vivacious.

Time to get some colour back into this blog!!
Hibiscus has a short blooming period here,
so I enjoy it while we have it!
And raindrops make everything look better!
Especially now that we are in the cold weather
before the snows...
I wonder how people lived through winter before there were photographs to lift their spirits?

This is the front of a box my Dad dragged home. I love the carving.  The texture of the finish is interesting, too.

I keep looking at this image, thinking I should delete it, but I cannot.
What is your opinion of it?

Last time I was visiting my Mom, I was returning from a walk, and saw this dragonfly sitting on the sidewalk. The sidewalk was not at all busy, but the street was. I wonder what the drivers thought, as I was lying there with my camera...

This is the pitcher my Grandma used for milk when she lived on the farm. They moved to town before I turned 10, so that was a long time ago. I use it now when I bring the lilacs into the house...

Clematis Seeds

On an October afternoon, after the rain, I spotted this clematis going to seed.
I love the way the sun behind it catches the raindrops!
