winter's beauty







Hi there!  Just checking in and I thought I'd share some winter scenes with you today.
I took these photos before I went away and  New Brunswick got another huge snowstorm yesterday (Wednesday) with nearly a foot of fresh snow!  I can't believe all the storms we're getting this year and almost always on a Sunday and Wednesday.  Most of the storms had wind with them which blew the snow off the trees so it was nice to have pretty scenes of snow laden trees for a change.

Burdocks wearing snow hats.









I'm standing next to a snowdrift that is over 4 feet high in our backyard.    I can't imagine what our yard and deck looks like now!  Schools were closed for the 8th day since January and the roads were terrible to travel on.

This is Murray clearing the drift behind the deck.  

This is the snow pile behind the deck.  We shovelled the deck off most of the winter but missed doing it for the last 4 storms as you can see.  

This was my job.  I made a path and also shovelled the top half of snow that was on the pergola which was over 2 feet deep.


Meanwhile in Southern Alberta we got a dusting of snow today on bare ground.  There wasn't a speck of snow here as the weather has been quite mild.


I am having a fantastic time visiting our daughter and her sweet family.  Our grandsons are adorable and so much fun.  I can't believe how much Ewan and Eli have changed in 6 months and baby Liam loves to snuggle with me.  All three are so sweet and precious. I am so happy to be here and am enjoying every moment.  


I hope you're having a great week.

Blessings,

Pam

  4. I would have thought Alberta would more snow Pam, is this normal for them? We've been talking about when we get home if we'll be able to open our back door to get to the bird feeders and let the dog out. :-)
    Enjoy your visit, I'm loving the FB photos.

  23. While I am sorry that you have so much snow, I am happy that you got such gorgeous photos...see there is a silver lining in everything isn't there?

    I love Canadian bloggers too! There is simply not enough of them out there. I keep adding them to my page when I find new ones that I read.

  24. Beautiful snow at home. The new deck looks like it's carrying that snowy load well. Glad you are spending a little time with your sweet grandsons (and their parents.) The west has had a very mild winter this year. Such a contrast to yours. Enjoy the snuggles!
