Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photo

Old Man Winter Refuses to Leave

This would have been a beautiful sight at the beginning of December when people dreamed of a white Christmas, skiing or frolicking in the snow. We had another heavy snowfall only two days ago while our blogging friend Steve was photographing floral carpets in Texas. As President Carter once stated, “Nothing is fair in life.” Yet, I am not depressed when I see a beautiful landscape under a blue sky.

  1. Our central Texas wildflower carpets have come at least two weeks earlier than last year. On the other hand, we never get to see snow-covered mountains in any month here. We all enjoy whatever the land gives us.


  2. It is a beautiful scene Peter. The seasons seem to be getting out of wack these days. Here in Australia, it is still summer really, but it should be getting a lot cooler as we go into winter. I am finding that I am still using the air conditioner. Oh well, as you said it is a lovely.


  3. Your photo shows a landscape fully as beautiful as anything we’re experiencing in Texas now. Of course the longing for spring can become intense, just as we long for a break in the heat at the end of summer. But there are consolations, and this winter beauty surely is one.


  4. Ben Franklin thought guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days. I don’t agree with that, but I agree with Ann Coleman, this winter has been around five months already and really has overstayed its welcome.


  5. This is definitely not a sight to get depressed over, even if it means you have to be a little more patient before you can welcome true spring. At least you have moisture to help the vegetation along once it warms up. It’s cool and dry here and the landscape is still mainly brown.


  6. Yes, that would be beautiful in December but…it is beautiful now also although maybe a little uncomfortable when spring is on your mind. Hopefully it won’t happen this year but it is not unheard of for us to experience a Nor’easter at some point in April.
