You know, when I started Green Thumb Sunday, oh so many months ago, I really thought that when the winter months rolled around I’d perhaps have photos of snow covered pine or cedar branches and trees, frosted, ice covered dead flowers that perhaps looked interesting, icicles, or my snow covered garden in winter.
But no … I can’t do that. It’s barely snowed at all this year. We’ve had a few very light dusting’s of snow, often in the middle of the night that’s already been melting away by dawn. No shoveling. No icing roads. Nothing of the sort.
So I’m afraid that I can’t display frosty winter garden scenes. Not today. Not yet anyway. If this keeps up I’ll be digging out old photos of winter nature scenes that might be suitable for Green Thumb Sunday Winter editions.
The photo that I decided to show you today was taken last January. It was a nice winter day. Perhaps it was only -5 Celsius (23 F). Most winters that would be a fairly nice January day. Perhaps it was even 0 C (32 F).
Either way it felt warm enough and it was a bright sunny day, so Chris and I went to the beach. Something we tend to do more often in the winter months than we usually do in the summer. Yes, we’re weird that way.
On the beach you can see more snow than we’ve had so far this Winter. I love the No Swimming sign. As if! Do you know how cold Lake Ontario would be in the winter? Brrrr
