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?

Snow over Freezing Rain

It is very pretty outside

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

it was just below freezing

On top of Borers Falls

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
