Mild December Weather

 Bridge to Aubrey's island

This morning My husband and I visited friends who have a pond on their property
.
 Seen from the island to northern shore of pond

LOOK! No ice yet!

 Weeds, pond in background

This is a little dark because the sun kept coming out and going in.

Peeling birch

One of the joys of this time of year is seeing the natural peeling of birch bark.

It was 87 degrees on my hike yesterday. Argh. Where's 'winter'?

Enjoyed your shots.

very pretty golds abound.

VP said...

So much golden light, it almost looks like summer...

William Kendall said...

A lovely spot. The peeling bark is my favourite shot among these.

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful as always and such a great little bridge!! Our weather in Oregon is amazingly mild for this time of year, too!! Hope you have a great new week!! Enjoy!!

The second one is my favourite, it's gorgeous. So what happened to the white fluffy stuff?

HOOTIN ANNI said...

The weather is definitely odd this year....maybe some winter will show its face all too soon tho.

Lovely property. I wish I had a pond!!

Nature is one of life's awesome wonders. You captured it beautifully on your friend's property. It is springlike here too. Enjoying it while it lasts :)

Revrunner said...

Way, too mild, I think.

Sandra said...

I really like all the weeds and grasses, beautiful to me and we are unseasonable to...

I'm sure you are enjoying the mild December weather!

Christine said...

A very pleasant day to be out and about enjoying the beauty around! Love the birch bark peeling!

Looks like you're still having beautiful autumn weather. We just got our first major snow storm! Happy Christmas!

Debbie said...

Very nice images, pretty golden tones!! We are having record breaking warmth here at the jersey shore!!

Pamela Gordon said...

You certainly are enjoying beautiful weather there Tina. We are in storm mode tonight and tomorrow with ice pellets and freezing rain. I'm praying the power doesn't go out as it would be very dark, cold and lonely. Hubby is in PEI and may have to stay overnight! :(

Love your rendition of the weeds! Forgot that you can link on Monday for Nature Notes - I alwas do it on Tue.:) Happy week!

RedPat said...

Hasn't it been wonderful - although a bit of sun would be nice!

Jack said...

A nice collection of early winter images. I suspect that "real winter" will arrive with a vengeance before long.

Jenny said...

I feel like I'm in some kind of a time warp with our everlasting October. Sure makes the driving easier, though. I like the frothy weeds and the birch bark blowin' in the wind.

Ruth Hiebert said...

That's incredible that in the middle of December there is no ice.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots around the pond.

Cloudia said...

Thanks for reminding me of the birch paper!

Well...we had a skim of ice on our tiny seasonal pond this morning (it melted). I suppose dragonflies could have ice skated on it.
What a pretty setting this is! Very nice shots!

Lovely photos. It's still ridiculously warm here. No snow yet.

Kate said...

Love your photos~~~without snow and ice. The birch tree is beautiful.

Stephanie said...

Lovely images!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

You have started out with a mild winter.

Beautiful shots.

If you do get snow, please keep it in Canada. We don't want any Canadian snow in Oklahoma please;)

Rose said...

Oh, what a nice series of photos...looks like a nice place to visit.

Nicol Carm said...

Mild weather give you the chance to do these beautiful pictures.

s.c said...

So no ice rink this year on the pond but it looks really nice.

Tom said...

Mild is an understatement.

AlexaT said...

Indeed, it is a great and warm weather for walks in the nature! The pictures are amazing; the pond is like an invitation for admiring nature...
Greetings for december!

Halcyon said...

What a beautiful place for a walk around.

Jeanne said...

Love the birch trees and just wish we had some of those in Texas!

Indrani said...

Lovely captures from your world!

Barb said...

No snow yet? I like all the grasses and seed heads. It doesn't look like you'll have a white Christmas!

Fun60 said...

Great photo of the peeling bark. I suppose there is still time for a white Christmas.

Laila said...

It's the same here in Sweden...
Both autumn and winter has been very mild so far. Today we had some frost and even that made me happy! ;-)

NatureFootstep said...

nice shots, but..... seem like the weather we have too. One day a degre below zero, nest day 10 degree above. Tomorrow we are expecting temperature records for warmest december in decades.

Rambling Woods said...
