Give the view larger thingie a week click….

A beautiful winter’s day in the Great White North. Sunny, nary a cloud to be seen, temperature around freezing and no wind to speak of. Not bad at all.

It was warm enough that the snow had started melting on the tree branches and little icicles had formed. As they grew, small water droplets gradually trickled down to the end and dropped to the ground.

Ma nature sure knows how to decorate a tree, eh?
