Cedarvale got its first thick coating of snow of the 2014-15 winter on Thursday 11th December. (I know because that is the day I put my back out shovelling it.)
Above is the rail of the wetland across from the tennis courts. Below is a closeup, with some remaining oak leaves in the foreground and conifers behind:
Up beside the path parallel to Strathearn, some trees were heavily laden:
Down in the gully between the winter dog off-leash area and Strathearn, the snow lay particularly thickly on fallen trees:
Between the Glencedar and Bathurst St bridges, the snow was not as thick, but still offered a wintry panorama.
As usual, this season’s crop of cat-tails stood out against the forested slope behind.
My hands were quite frozen after taking these shots, and I hastened into Loblaws to warm them around a welcome cup of coffee.
Soon after these photos were taken, warm weather caused most of this snow to disappear.
We are now working on a web site and will likely migrate this blog over to WordPress, where it will be part of the web site.
