What a difference a day makes!

 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.
the critters in the cottage xo


  1. Wow,
    that does look pretty!
    Hope Mother Nature listens to Issa and Duffy, though

  2. I agree, Mother Nature sure sent way too much snow this year...
    Pretty to look at, cold to walk in!

  3. It looks so pretty everywhere but we know however pretty it is it's freezing cold on paws, ears and noses. The humans moan about having to dig snow off driveways totally ignoring the wonderful exercise it gives them! We hope it melts soon for you.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. we are so tired of looking at snow that we could scream (nothing personal lol). We have enough of our own and I hear there is another storm headed our way Monday

  5. The landscape is very pretty, but so much cold!!!!
    Keep warm buddies!

  6. Wow! How very unusual! It is very pretty but we do hope it melts away soon!

    Purrs and Woofs,
    The Chans and Tommy

  7. Oh you two have a serious case of the cutes! However that snow sure is not cute. We are glad you got some nice weather for your walk yesterday before this hit. We thinks that LP should give you both a footie massage to warm up those toesies of yours!

  8. Beautiful! it only snowed 2 times the winter wes lived in Vancouver!

  9. Winter is never going to end we fear. Our last snow was 2/13, but we still have some on the ground. Hope yours melts very fast. Duffy Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Joand Issa look adorable in that swing. Hope they got carried home and had their toes warmed up.

  10. Wow! That snow is very pretty. Though we hafta admit, we've had our fill of snow this winter.

    Issa and Duffy look so cute on that swing.

  11. Again ! We wish that Mother Nature hears your request this time ! Purrs

  12. You got our snow storm, too! I hope you could enjoy the beauty and keep your toes warm enough!
