M/Alphabe-Thursday

 Snow melting on spruce tree

M is for MELT

A week ago, even though the day was cold (just ask my ears and fingers), sun shining on this spruce was melting the snow on the tree's branches.

 Pefferlaw Creek

Water in this creek kept part of it free of ice.

Insulation needed!

This house is undergoing major renovations and I'm sure adding insulation is in the plans.

The first one will make a perfect Christmas card :)
And I'm also sure the owner will add some insulation, the icycles are wonderful!
My favourite is the Pefferlaw Creek - beautiful colours!
Have a fine day

Thanks to you Camera Girl I am reminded that winter does have some beauty in it.

Oh wow those icicles in the last shot look very menacing, but also striking.

Great icicles on that overhang and spruce!...:)JP

Revrunner said...

I like that first photograph the best.

Gunilla Bäck said...

The icicles are gorgeous, but they're dangerous when they fall down from the roofs.

Lowell said...

Pretty winter pics. The last one reminds me of when I was a child walking to school in Duluth, Minnesota in the winter. I'd see icicles like this, break them off, and eat them like a popsicle! Probably not too sanitary, but on the other hand, it probably helped my wee body build some resistance to germs. Just guessing.

Malyss said...

Your last picture is very impressive ! Must be scary to be Under ice when it's mmelting -and maybe falling !

Aimeecakes said...

Everything looks a little bit magical when covered in icicles!

see you there! said...

When I saw the first picture I thought we had slipped back into December and Christmas. The second one made be a bit more hopeful about spring comeing... eventually.

I love icicles, but, it is too cold

TexWisGirl said...

ladyfi said...

I just love those icicles!

George said...

I really like the photo of the snow melting on the tree. Although the icicles on the house are pretty, I agree that some more insulation is in order.

VP said...

Amazing natural decorations!

Gattina said...

Very beautiful pictures ! Our temperatures are too low for ice !

RedPat said...

The 1st one reminds me of Christmas decorations!

Karen S. said...

Wow, your lovely photos could be from my own yard and house, except this year with our some what milder winter, we have very few ice beauties hanging from our house, which is fine by me!

Stephanie said...

Impressive shots, love this last one with the icicles. We are having such mild temperatures here on the West Coast. Some ski hills shutting down due to lack of snow.

Tahiti Daily Photo said...

Your fisrt shot is amazing ! A brilliant capture !

cieldequimper said...

Now you see, unlike mine, those *are* serious icicles! The first shot looks almost like a Christmas tree!

CountryMum said...

Great icicle shot. It does look very chilly.

Ginny said...

These huge icicles are impressive! But your first picture is so perfect that the icicles look like the artificial ones you buy to put on your Christmas tree.

DeniseinVA said...

I love our photos, so very pretty. Like a winter wonderland.

Mo said...

The icicles are so beautiful.

Rose said...

The snow melting on the spruce is a pretty shot, I want to be there at that creek in the second, and that last shot! Wow, all those icicles...been a long time since I saw any like that.

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Fab just fab,love the first one, it looks like a decorated Christmas tree..

Lois said...

I just love seeing icicles! That first shot is so pretty.

Pamela Gordon said...

The tree icicles are so pretty. There is a lot of heat in the sun even on these bitterly cold days. I've also noticed some melting on our deck. I sure hope that house has insulation on the renovation list. That's a lot of icicles!

Kay said...

As cold as it's been in your region (& eastern U.S.) I'd take those melting icicles as a hopeful sign.
The third shot is a great capture, too...

Felicia said...

whoooooo wheee, these are great.

Randy said...

The icicles are amazing.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I love how the evergreen tree is decorated with nature's icicles.

My goodness, your photos are simply marvelous! I love those icicles! I am glad we don't have a lot of snow. I know the water is good for us but the drive is murder! A great share to which I give you an abundance of many beautiful compliments! Please stop by soon. Have a great weekend!
