Snowy Christmas Travels

We had a snowy drive back from the Okanagan. Look at the trees on the summit, completely covered!

Winter Sheep

This guy stood still and let me photograph him from the truck.

This is a common sight on the road to our place, but I never get tired of stopping for the sheep. Sometimes there will be a couple of males butting heads – wow! These photos were taken in Syringa Creek Provincial Park in BC. City folks might be surprised at the size of these creatures: an adult male sheep standing next to my SUV can look me in the eye almost level. You must not get out of the vehicle for a closer look, even though they seem tame.

Autumn harvest time in Blueberry

Unfortunately the frost got to our tomatoes before I could harvest the rest of them. We planted a little late this year and didn’t get the best results. Next year my daughters and I will plant the tomatoes and pumpkins at our summer cabin, where they have plenty of sunshine and space to grow.
