Esme , " Last night it snowed! Can you see the snow heavy on the trees behind me?"
Esme , " The snow falling last night , looked like a Christmas card. "
Esme, " This is what the street we live on looked like by morning!"
Esme , " The tree tops are now heavy with snow."
Esme , " No! This is not an elephant foot! It is the moss covered base of a tree on our street. Moss with snow on it in looks odd (yet lovely) in Vancouver. We don't see that often!"
Esme , " Our neighbourhood park is now a winter wonderland!"
Esme , " If you biggify this photo, you will see the faint outline of a swing set between the towering trees in our park."
Duffy, " That's where Issa and I took refuge this morning! On the swings!"
Issa , " The snow is very cold on our little, tender toes!"
Issa and Duffy, "Um. Hello?! Can someone carry us home?! And Mother Nature, can you lay off the catnip and drink?! You are sending snow months after the reasonable time limit ,and you are sending it to a usually rainy city that rarely sees snow! Our crocuses were blooming! Indignant neighbourhood birds are letting us know through their nettled birdsong , that you need to send some sun and melt this beautiful mess before you cause some very big problems! And that should be pronto! Love Issa and Duffy. Your neighbourhood watch. Over and out."
Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.
