Nature’s Art #06.

Hi everyone on this very chilly January day!  It was -29C (-20F) this morning but felt more like -36C (-33F).  That’s getting to be more like a normal winter temp now.  Not that I was missing these colder days, I wasn’t.  The milder temps are much better, and they will be coming back briefly tomorrow and Saturday, then back to cold.  So much up and down this winter.  We still don’t have much snow, but that can change quickly, February and March are the 2 snowiest months for us normally.  I had a nice treat yesterday, a new bird showed up, actually more than 50 of them came by for about half an hour.  They were Bohemian waxwings, a very beautiful winter bird from further north.  Unfortunately it was snowing yesterday so it was hard to get a good pic, but I tried anyway and I hope to post a pic later today.

But now, time for our art in nature pics for today…

Just had to share another picture of rocks under water, they look so cool.  For perspective, the 3 largest rocks are about 3 feet (a little less than a meter) across.IMG_8581

A framed pic of our beautiful moon on an early summer morning.

And there we have today’s selections for our art in nature.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

      • The crayfish and leeches stay around the rocks, best to stay in the sandy areas and then there’s no problem.😀 Beaches are best for swimming areas. Yep, they will pinch toes and they have big claws for pinching!😲🦀
        Breakfast is over, I’m going out for coffee, then I will stay inside and read blogs while it snows.😀😀 Snow days are good for reading and I need to catch up.🤪🙄 Sigh. And I might write about another adventure today as well. Oh, chapter 8 of my story is out now. It’s the ghost!!😲😲👻

      • There is still Feb and March, our 2 snowiest months.😳 But maybe we won’t get much snow this winter,🙄 usually we would have twice this much by now, there is only about 30cm on the ground so far.😀🥶🙀I think I have to agree with you, I don’t often listen,🙄 but I do sometimes!😁 I just can’t think of anything at the moment,🤔 but I’m sure I have at some point.😀🙄Enjoy yourself, drink plenty of water, enjoy all the heat.😁😸🌞🌴Or was it colder there?🤔⛄

      • Feb and March… 🤔 hmm that’s just 60 days more plus 10 days😉 😋 30 CM is still high, when this snow disappear does it cause flood 🤔 😜 Sure Steve, mean while I’m going to stick with more water less spicy foods ☺️ It’s still cold at night 🥶 I’m sure you’ll ask is this COLD😳 I’ll go like 19 to 25 C at night 😜 that’s it but we still feel it’s too much as we are not used to that part 😁 and yeah it’s warm, up to 30 C during noon. And i love when it’s warm 😍🥰.. Have a beautiful day Steve☺️

      • We never have problems with flooding here, except a little bit along the river, even there it isn’t bad. This is a land of rock hills, lakes, rivers, streams, so there is a good drainage of water from melting snow. However, it’s never a good idea to build at the bottom of a hill!😂🙄Yes, I can see why that would feel cold for you, 19 to 25 is normal hot summer days for us. But our climate has cooled off a lot from what it used to be. We used to get several weeks in summer with temps 30 to 37,🌞😎 not anymore. Now it’s usually 20 to 27.😕😥 Only rarely do we get up to 30 now. And our winters have gotten worse too, this is our mildest winter in many years.😃⛄Thanks Simon, hope you have a great day as well!😁😸

    • Too cold for me too!
      Not these birds, they never come to the feeder, sure wish they would, I have even tried enticing them with berries which is all they eat. Plus things like leftover crab apples and cherries.
      Cold and very windy today with a snowstorm coming soon.😬🥶🌨
      Have a great day Renee!😁😸
