December 14/ Nature Notes

Mid December - East Gwillimbury

This week East Gwillimbury experienced a mix of rain and snow and even a few hours of sun.

Largest square: Canadian National passing through the outskirts of town under blue skies, which are usually very rare this time of year.

Moving clockwise: grass and cattails on the edge of a local creek, not yet frozen; snow on dried beech leaves; snow on young white pine tree; melted snow on back of fallen leaf; and black alder on edge of creek.
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

see you there! said...

The leaf with raindrops looks like it could have been in our yard. Are you having a milder winter than usual? I seem to remember more snow at your place but maybe that was later in the year.

Neat collage. I admire those who know how to do this, I don't. Its probably an easy thing to do with the right program but I have a hard enough time just doing what I do now. Maybe I should say, I waste enough time already on the blogging procedure. Very nice.

Lovely collage. I find it interesting that here in southern California we have more snow than you do!!! Lol. I'm sure ours won't last but it is trippy.

It's definitely starting to look like winter in your neck of the woods. I always enjoy your collages.

Great fun. The train provides a flash of color as it speeds toward spring!

You've put together another wonderful collage. I really like the leaf with the snow and the leaf with raindrops.
