Is it just me or is WordPress stalking my blog? I posted “a change of scene” on Wednesday and on Friday they come out with this challenge? Come on people – you’ve got to try to stay ahead of me! Since I posted snow shots which represent the authoritative arrival of winter, I thought I’d share a couple of variations on the theme. The first photo represents the true end of the Christmas season. When we put up a large tree, the easiest way to get it out of the house is to prune all the branches off and cart it out in pieces. The second photo shows what looks like snow in my front yard. It is actually hail that collected on the ground in July of 2004. I think it represents an unusual and unwelcome change in the season, but one that doesn’t surprise anyone who lives in Calgary.
