Oh! The Coldness Of It All!...For Amelia
It does seem that the only signs of an "almost winter" at the palace are the frozen fingers of ice that are clutching at the roots of the trees lining the Lake Ontario shoreline.
Large pieces of ice dangle like silver earrings on the branches of the trees making them indeed a pretty sight.
Pretty? Yes, but oh so chilling!
Even the surrounding rocks that are hugging the trees for warmth are frozen! SOLID!
As is the very ground!
There is just no escaping the strong clasp of the frozen water as it makes it way up this tree's trunk.
The warm rays of the day's sun nor even the latter sunset's warm caress had no power on the relentless ice.
The kindly sun really tried its hardest as it licked the icicles growing in the water, turning them a bright pink, but to no avail.
No!To be frozen until spring were the trees' destiny!
Maybe Mrs. Mac's wishes for a warm blanket of white fluffy snow to cover these shivering creatures will come true!
In the meantime though, I will have to give these pictures to dRaGoNfY WiNgS to gaze at, as she is feeling the heat too much in her own country and says she needs even just a little sight of Canadian winter to cool her off!
