Bloggers in the southern hemisphere are currently experiencing extreme heat. How I envy them sometimes for their hot, warm days while I tramp outside on the snow in temperatures below minus 20c. This post is dedicated to bloggers like Christine at dadirridreaming who would like to cool off a little. Hope these snowy pictures help a little!
A few days after this picture was taken, snow fell again. Unfortunately that day I had taken my camera out of my bag.
I enjoy looking at the scenes after a fresh fall of snow. The trees and bushes look a little different with their tips covered in white.
The pigeons in Toronto have become hardy and we still see them around from time to time. A little after Christmas, I saw these pecking the sidewalk for a few grains of food.
I enjoy walking in the streets when flurries fall gently on our heads. The temperature is not too cold and the world seems a little more silent.
Christmas decorations seem a little more Christmasy when covered in white.
I find the winter scenes beautiful – especially as they cover the grey of the sidewalks and the tar of the roads.
This winter has been long and cold. We have had ice, many days of extreme low temperatures and quite a few snowfalls. We look forward to warmer days with eagerness but have been told by the weather forecasters that we have still many weeks of cold left. Sigh! In the meantime I enjoy blog posts of flowers and warmer climes.
