Winter Has Arrived

Yes,we all knew it was coming, yet when it did, we were surprised.
What am I talking about? Winter.
In Manitoba,we were enjoying a long spell of milder than usual weather, but that has come to an end.
Winter happened overnight. From Monday evening to Tuesday morning everything changed.
The pictures I have today are not from this year, but they very well could be.

I am always interested in seeing how the wind carves the snow into sharp fingers.


A heavy snowfall leaves a layer of the white stuff on the deck railing.


This lone tree is quite picturesque at any time of year.

Frost flowers are no longer gracing my windows, since I've had them replaced, the windows that is, but I'm glad I got these pictures when I could.


Such intricate detail,created by God the Master designer.


Thought for Today:
Reminding ourselves about God’s goodness can keep us filled with His peace.

  1. Such beauty warms the heart - if you stay indoors - and only go out in small doses to get some fresh air and have some fun!

  2. These frost pictures are amazing! A beautiful work of art by god. they look like feathers. The other favorite of mine is the wonderful tree. The snow will be coming here soon, too. I always try to find frost and photograph it, but fail miserably every year.

  3. Beautiful wintery photos, Ruth! When I was a child my Mother would tell me that Jack Frost visited and left those feathery markings on our windows with his breath. We have had less snow than usual the end of this year in Colorado --I hope that when winter fimally arrives the mountains will get all the snow they need to feed the river sin Spring.

  7. Hi Ruth, Thanks for these photos. They set the scene so well. My favorite this time is the solitary tree. Interesting coincidence ... winter arrived in Seattle last night. We got about an inch or so of snow at my place but it really is too warm for it to accumulate much or stick around long. It is melting off pretty fast this morning. One more thing for this comment: Have I mentioned your December header? It is great! Hope you have a fine weekend ahead!

  12. Ruth, great winter images! We are presently in the grip of the old man. An Arctic Outflow, they call it. Wind and cold from the North/East. Very cold. But we won't get the temps you get! Or I hope not anyway! It been a bonus in a way, as we've had a lot of birds in the yard. Way more than usual. In fact I got two lifers is two days, right in the backyard! I'm happy!

  14. I enjoy seeing photos of the snow and ice patterns, but ONLY in photos. I like green year 'round.

    Gorgeous images. I remember the 'lone' tree. It's so humbling and gives my soul a lot of quiet-tude.

  16. You're the master of frost photos, Ruth. But I think you were wise to replace the windows that allowed you those beautiful images. :) I love that tilted tree!
