We took the back door into the cafe in Ingersoll, and passed these steps, almost as steep as a ladder. Someone appeared to live at the top - I wonder how they moved their furniture in...

Skootamatta River

I captured this curving tree on the journey to and from Woodstock, so you can see the difference a couple of days can make.

Flowering Crab Apples

Monday Morning

I am going to be away for a few days, visiting my parents.

Remember the heart bowl full of stones last month? Well, this is what it looks like now...

Frosty Leaves

There hasn't been enough snow yet to flatten the leaves, so some of them still filter the sunlight.

 with captured fluff - either milkweed or cattail...
