Over The Wall

This pic was taken by standing on an icy picnic table pulled up to yesterday's stone wall and leaning through one of the low spots in the wall to catch a wonderland of trees and deer. I had watched them installing these trees a few weeks ago - they are fibreglass and come in pieces which are fitted together on site. I think there are a dozen of them. I'm not sure how many deer there were but there was also a small group of squirrels way off in the distance. I'm planning on visiting Casa Loma over the holidays so will find out what other wee creatures are around. (I also liked the angel whose silhouette you can see just to the right of the lower chimney.)

Stunning looking Christmas light display. Glad you didn't slip off the icy picnic table. Your risks and efforts paid off in a great picture.

This is wonderful! Can you walk around the grounds - or were you just trying to get a higher perspective?

Hi Pat. Re your comment on Ocala: It is always sunny here. It's just that sometimes the fog fogs up the sun. :)
