Winter is here now, for sure

This morning, soon after 7 a.m. when I rose, I noticed the frost on the trees outdoors, as though Jack Frost had used a giant paint brush and decorated everything outdoors, and the sky was the most amazing colour of light blue. As the sun climbed even higher in the sky, the effect was dazzling. And so for today, I’ll just share some thoughts and photos that my husband and I took.

Unlike last year when the snow came in late October, here in southwestern Ontario, and seemed to stay through a lot of November and December, in late 2014 we had a taste of winter about a month before Christmas and then the snow disappeared and we had a “green” Christmas. Now it seems that we do indeed have winter. It was mighty cold when I set out for writer’s group meeting last evening, and even colder on my return home.

There’s beauty in winter. Watch for it.
