A Butterfly

This sign with all the information about the Mourning Cloak Butterfly was attached to the pole in Yesterday's post. I had never heard of this butterfly but will be on the lookout come spring. I assume that the info and photo were put up by local resident Dave Beadle who is a noted illustrator of wildlife especially birds and moths. He is the author of the Peterson guide to Moths of Southeastern North America.

Another Laneway

As I wandered around a couple of weeks ago I spotted this sign for one of our laneways.  It seemed like an unusual name for a lane but someone had left a sign to explain what Mourning Cloak is all about. I'll share it with you tomorrow.

Snowy Deck

 This pic was taken last Tuesday after we had a snow storm on Monday. I showed you the same scene on Sunday when I sat out in the sun but this day it was -11˚C and windy so I took this pic through a window. What a difference a bit of sun can make!

Blue Bird

This was a nice discovery on a rather dull day as I wandered along a laneway trying to avoid close contact with people. I love how the door is so nicely painted while the frame around it looks so weathered. I could see no artist name on this one.

Sunny Day On The Deck

We have had little sunshine lately but last Sunday the sun came out and after a bit of snow overnight it made for a bright scene on the deck. It was -4˚C and with the sun it was a nice place to sit out for a few minutes. Catching some Vitamin  D.

Cat In The Shop

This lovely cat lives in an antique store and he usually sits by the window waiting for people to come in. With the Covid shutdown there are no shoppers entering non-essential stores so he is a bit lonely. When I passed by the cat was sitting in the middle of the shop looking at the door and as soon as I came near he jumped down and ran over and proceeded to rub his chin  on the handle of that wagon. Later when I passed by again he was once more sitting and staring at the door. A social creature cut off from people for a bit!

An Arch Of Ice

 The ice balls shown in yesterday's post were part of this arch of ice spotted in the front garden of a home.  The very cold weather we have been having was put to good use by a local artist.
