I’m a sucker for the linear shadows created by tightly growing saplings but it could be getting close to time to thin these maples. Today it was bright and cold and we snowshoed over to the south side of the creek. This photo was taken on the road between the pond holes while T did laps.

The sun shines down the middle of the creek while I cross at the tractor crossing today so I photograph my shadow with very long legs.

Could it really be snowing again? How novel.

It was an action-packed day Family Day for me. First we went to Lake Ontario for a kid’s ice-fishing event (pictured, with additional firepit and marshmallows) and then to the Arena for a free skate. In the afternoon I went to my Mom‘s and we made soup and did a puzzle.

It’s cold today and I didn’t spend much time outside.
My brother-in-law thinks this shed is an eyesore but I think it’s rustic.

My snowshoes were covered in snow today and I didn’t have time to take them for a spin; I had to clear all snow and do laundry and vacuum because electricity is cheaper on the weekend.

Alder, Snow, and Ice

A female alder (Alnus incana) leans over the edge of the creek that is striped with ice and snow.
There were many other snow textures as I snowshoed today: Daucus carota in snow, shadows in a curve of snow, and drifted snow around goldenrod.
