A Hawk and a Skunk


Saw a Hawk in a tree on Hwy 9


backed up to take a picture


a skunk in the pasture


Is it a sign of Spring?

Ice Diamonds


It looks so pretty still


but our eyes can see all these ice diamonds


a picture just doesn't do it justice


 Even the milktruck looks cool


this picture captures some colours

absolutely love driving around

Job 38
Does the rain have a father?
    Who fathers the drops of dew?

From whose womb comes the ice?

    Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens

when the waters become hard as stone,

    when the surface of the deep is frozen?

Freezing Rain


The windows have a layer of ice


and so does almost everything else


sharp looking shrub


it's windy so pieces of ice fall out of the trees


the clothes line looks kind of cool


hope we get out of the Freezing Rain area soon

Sunsets


Saturday Evening


Not much of a difference,
just spectacular both times

"Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done"

Melting snow


Amazing how much snow has melted


even the river has the ice  "wandering"


kind of interesting how that works, up and over each other


the pasture is clearing fast


almost makes you want to look for Robins, have not seen one yet!

late Picture


When I loaded pictures on the computer I found this one
must have been taken on the last day when the Shaffers were here

GVT Fairview-Doon area


The GTV (Grand Valley Trail) is beside the Grand River


we saw deer while sitting down for a snack


we had Yaktrax on our shoes, it helped a lot
way easier when you are not afraid to fall


This trail is not always easy to follow,
several times we had trouble finding the blazes


Hidden valley road, enormous houses


quite a bit of the trail is through the city, but we love it 
when we are back by the river


Agatha wasn't there so we were just with the 3 of us


It was a very nice hike
