It’s been a winter of ups and downs – cold, snowy days followed by relatively balmy, sunny, teasing thaws. This week has been no exception; +2 yesterday, -20 today (yes, minus twenty!), +2 again on Sunday. There’s no use in complaining; I prefer to embrace winter, and find joy where and when I can, like yesterday morning, when we awoke to a fresh, fluffy layer of snow covering everything. I hope these garden shots help demonstrate why I (usually) love winter in Canada.
