A Walk in The Snow and Flowers

Today we will have a walk in the snow!  Yesterday we had some snow and.....

today we went and took some pictures of the snow.

These are all taken at Island View Beach today.

You have to click on them to see the larger version or the slideshow of them.

For The Weekend in Black and White here.

For Sky Watch a Blue Sky!

There are Brant Geese out at Island View Beach now.

For Sky Watch Friday Maber Flats.

We saw a young eagle at Durrance Lake.

For Saturday's Critters we saw an eagle and a hawk.

This hawk looks so much like Spunky I am sure it is him and I see him all the time out in Sidney. He looks very beautiful.

For Floral Friday Fotos and Pink Saturday I have made a slideshow of flowers mostly from Butchart Gardens and around here in the summer.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
