Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Nostalgic Look Back at Spring and Summer

Leaves that had fallen off our giant hazelnut tree plugged up our eaves troughs forming in sub-zero temperatures an icy mess. Before more snow is falling, I need to clean the troughs. Climbing up and down the long ladder is not an easy task. Despite the gloves I am wearing my hands quickly become cold and numb. Standing on top of the ladder and shoveling down leaves and ice, my thoughts wander back in time. I see images in a nostalgic dream-like state of mind. Here are three photos. Enjoy.

  1. Aaaaah, spring! Summer! Not long and we are there again … 🙂
    Greetings from gray and dark Denmark, we switch on the Christmas lights at 4 p.m. but that must be the same where you live I think. You are maybe even a bit higher up north than us.


  2. I smiled at the bee on the petal. It looks as though it might be clinging there as carefully as you were clinging to your ladder. Of course, the bee’s circumstances were more pleasant!


  3. We had leaf filters installed last year and so far they have performed well. For cold hands I have a pair of battery heated gloves that were a little pricey but keep my fingers warm. I have Raynaud’s Disease and my hands are super sensitive to cold and the gloves keep me comfortable. Hand Warmers inside the gloves too. That said, I’d gladly clean leaves if it meant having hazelnuts growing in my yard. Nice catch of the bee.
