  3. Shelley says:

    If its where I think it is (corner of the railing???) then its a branch of a large Purple Sandcherry

    What is this “winter” of which you speak?

  5. goodbear says:

    james/dennis…winter is a magical time. during winter, lavenderbay will wear boots, mittens and an enchanted head piece called a tuke….

    Well, shiver me timbers, looks a might nippy to me!

  7. Is that frost on that railing? If so, isn’t it a bit early? (But what do I know about frost…)

    Its not the latitude – it’s the elevation. Dundalk is the highest altitude in Ontario where people actually live – our house is 1718′ ASL. That added to the two hours north of Toronto means snow is possible any time after Labour Day.

    Wow, this is proof that I really am at the other end of the earth. Happy Winter to come guys. Spring is starting to warm us up around here.

    Do you think you guys could all come to my wake (in about 40 years) ? I love how you’re all chatting amongst yourselves.

    Yes that’s frost, yes I was surprised too, yes I’m glad the picture turned out so well, yes, that’s the corner of the railing ergo the large Purple Sandcherry. The plant (small tree? ) is, what, about eight feet high? That’s the top of it there in the picture.

    What I think is really nifty about this picture is that it shows the warmth of the living plant. It has already, by 07 00, melted not only its own frost (I presume it had been coated — the grass frost didn’t melt until 09 00 ) , but also the space around it on the wooden railing.

    Thanks, everyone, for stopping by. Slainte!
