Ice On The Pond

    Little by little the slow slide toward winter is progressing.  This morning I noticed that my pond was completely covered with ice, except for a small area in the middle.  While the days have been sunny, there wasn’t a whole lot of warmth and the overnight temperatures have been a cool -8C (18 F) .  In the mornings, the fields have been white with frost.  I noticed yesterday afternoon that the frost was remaining in those areas that stayed shaded throughout the day.
    To me, ice on the pond is one of those milestones that signify seasonal change.  The next one I will be waiting for is snow. 

I paint every morning, see my paintings at:  www.davidmarchant.ca
