The view from the window.
And the meadow out back.
Hiding the camera lens from the sun behind the tree lets you see the frost in a new light.
The trees along the fencerows just north of our place were stunning against the blue sky !
Most of the year I'd see cattle out in this pasture.
Standing guard over the old barn foundation.
Just about a perfect winter day!
I've had a series of really interesting conversations with a few key other Bruce Trail volunteers this week. At this time of year all the annual reports on both the trail itself and the properties we manage are in, and it's time to start developing our workplan for next year. Those of us involved in coordinating the efforts of nearly 90 Land Stewards and Trail Captains have to be prepared when spring comes! And that's just for one of the nine clubs that make up the Bruce Trail Conservancy. There's always blazes to be repainted, problems arising on properties, bridges to be repaired, and a waiting list of new side trails to be considered. A little conversation now to keep things coordinated helps a lot, so I've been in one Meaford coffee shop three times this week!
