Will That Be With Ice?



Oh yes! February in Nova Scotia....almost forgot!

An ice/rain/snow storm Monday night to beat all so far this year.

Everything continues to be ice-covered......


Are 'frozen prayers' any different from unfrozen ones?


It is really quite beautiful.


Sophie totally enjoyed walking atop the ice/crusty snow.


The clothesline wasn't budging.


The Corkscrew Witch Hazel tree took on another dimension. 


These rosehips are encased in crystal.


All that glitters......is ice.

  1. Beautiful! We have a corkscrew hazel that we planted 34 years ago. It needs about 2 ft pruning off it every year to keep it in check, or it would take over the garden.

    1. Hi Frances. I know what you are saying about these trees.....we keep an eye on it and have trimmed it when it starts to bolt across paths seemingly overnight!!

    1. It is a magical phenomena, eh Lorraine. Quite magical and mesmerizing it is. I know Quebec had a terrible ice storm years back but when it is manageable it is beautiful indeed.
      Now make sure you get other things done today!!lol

    1. I hear you, Debra. Today the ice continues but is not building up any. Tonight we get rain which will get rid of most of it.....then freezing again! Oh Canada!

    1. I hear you Joyce! This is all new to us here. Usually the ice disappears because the temperature goes up.....not so this time.

  7. if you don't have to drive in it-ice in winter is so breath takingly beautiful-we had a major ice storm here about 6 winters ago-we had not power for 19 days so that was no water either--but the woods was glimmering in "diamonds"
    Loved your photos

    1. Ice covered trees and plants take on a life of their own, Inger!
      Hope you are getting some rest from a very hectic past weekend in LA.
