We've had very cold temperatures and lots of snow this week, too cold at times to even go for a walk safely with the wind chill. But yesterday for a few hours the sun came out in a brilliant blue sky. The temperature stayed at -20°C (-4°F), but the bright skies made for great pictures. The first 5 are right around our house.
The front yard.
The spruce I planted 15 years ago as 8" twigs!
The north side yard.
The back yard.
The south side yard.
And a view of a swamp that attracted me as I drove by, the cedars in the background catching the snow while the hardwoods in the foreground didn't.
I guess I'm a man of few words tonight, but my first two hour-long talks on Scotland went very well today. Used up all my words doing that!
