Filling Up with Snow

 We walk by this wood spirit on our daily walks along our paths.  He gives this old spruce tree a lot of character as he over looks the river and I try to get a picture of him in all kinds of weather.
 Today we are suppose to get about thirteen centimetres of snow.  We haven't had much snow so far this winter and I'm looking forward  to a bit of a storm.  As I walked the dog today, I couldn't help but think of Robert Frost's poem, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening and the lines,
'He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow'   
My grade five teacher, Mrs Byron, made our class memorise that poem and I hated doing it but now I'm glad to have it in my head.  This is a picture of our woods filling up with snow:

  1. Hi There! Thanks for sending me this wonderful link! The gully looks like it would be a ton of fun for skating and that sunflower quilt is stunning!I am rather envious of your many talents and think I should start a hobby of sorts. However, we all know how "crafty" I am - LOL Don't think I will take up quilting:)I will stick to golf. Mo
