this is the final part of my morning walk that I am sharing with all of you today. It was much longer one than I had first thought.
Have you got your tea or coffee and a few spare minutes? ... Then let's walk!
This is the bridge I told you about earlier.
I love coming here just to stand for a few moments, take a deep breath ...
... and to take in the lovely surroundings.
I could stand here for hours and just look at this but unfortunately it was time to turn back and head home (chores were waiting).
It is amazing how the park and path looks so different depending from which direction you are coming from. It's almost like you are doing two walks instead of one.
Looking up at one of the few pine trees that lived along the path, I noticed it was full of pine cones, just waiting for spring to arrives so it could drop it's seeds.
A little further down the path it was almost like you were entering a hall with a tall ceiling.
The branches of the trees that lined some of the way seemed to be reaching out and holding on to each other. It gave me a slight feeling of being safe under nature's canopy.
Now back at the creek, where my walk started it will also end again.
One more look ... at the beauty of nature and it was time to go home.
... it the beauty of nature and it was time to go home. I had such a lovely time just walking that morning and I am going to try and do it sometime soon again.
But there was more ...
Remember how I said that I had thought the snow would be gone very soon in my first part of my walk?! ... Well, I was wrong. That evening it started to snow and it hasn't stopped since.
Here are a few photos to show you how much snow we actually got in the last 24 hours.
This is what happens when you live near the great lakes in Ontario and you get something called ... ... lake effect snow. We had about 10 to 12 inches of new snow fall so far and we are expecting more over the weekend.
Take a look !
That is my daughter Caylagh's little Christmas tree. It is just over 4 feel tall and almost completely covered it thick white snow.
I love my outdoor lights so much that I left the ones in the backyard up for a little longer.
Just before I went to bed last night, I took this photo.(Sigh ... I really do love my lights so much.)
I hope you have enjoyed my morning walk with me. Now it is time to stay inside and work on a few new projects that I will hopefully be able to share with all of you soon.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
Even I (who hates winter) would enjoy this walk. The frost on all the trees is amazing. I grew up on a farm and one of the things I liked about winter was the incredible patterns that Jack Frost created on the barn windows.ReplyDelete
Thank you for taking me on the walk. Beautiful picturesReplyDelete
Your shots of the pine cone and the bridge are keepers. They are worthy of framing.ReplyDelete
I used to LOVE cross country skiing on days like this. The serenity like none other.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the trip!
PS - I, too, lived right on Lake Erie and we always got the lake effects. Actually, where I lived was considered "the snow belt."
Wow! Winter is my favorite season....your pictures are spectacular! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Stunning. Nothing at all like the tropics where I live...you are blessed. xReplyDelete
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful pictures of your winter walk. I was sorry when they ended. I think another walk is in order now that you have so much new snow, and more pictures!ReplyDelete
Oh Karen... I would love to walk with you every day!ReplyDelete
