On Friday, we awoke to a winter wonderland. Amherst had the distinction of receiving the most snow in the Maritimes for the day- 25 cm. I am posting these pictures especially for Jennifer in New South Wales, who has recently returned from a trip to Canada but did not get to experience anything beyond a few flurries. I had my fingers crossed that there would be a major snowfall just for Jennifer while she was here, but it didn't happen. Jennifer, you'll have to make do with a few shots of our backyard...and Polly.
It fell on top of the holly bushes, which - under the snow - are covered in red berries, which the birds enjoy.
