Fresh Snow on Trees…

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.”    William Sharp ((pseud. Fiona MacLeod), 1855-1905)

I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland…much to my dismay.. the wet/soft packy snow had froze with a lot of powder on top of it.. so no snowmen for me! After shovelling a bit, and clearing off the cars…I took a walk and got some photos!

Trees + Snow = pure magic to the eyes! 

Living in Pangnirtung, where there are no trees makes me that much more appreciative when I do see them… seeing fresh snow painted so brilliantly on their branches was a welcome treat! 

Milo looks so extra small beside these great big beauties! 

I’m having a fabulous time with my mum here in Haliburton…filled with PJ days, movies and good food (although I think I have reached my turkey quota for 2011–good thing New Years is around the corner!)

I have plans to do a bit more travelling before my vacation is over… going to a wedding, meeting some friend’s new babies, catching up with friends in the Toronto area…this involves a bit more travelling, let’s hope the roads stay in good condition…but we all know how I like to stay on-the-road!
