A couple of days ago we had the first real snowfall of the season (it is almost all melted now).

We found a beautiful Polyphemus Moth in the back yard today.


We have come across the caterpillars and empty cocoons, but this is the first time we have found the moth.


At first I thought it was just a leaf.


Incredible!

Last week we enjoyed cold drinks and record breaking plus 30℃ on those chairs, and today they were covered in snow!!




This is pretty normal for here, and everything survives - and thrives.

We had a quick trip to Vancouver this weekend for my husband's work. This is leaving Vancouver
- the Rocky Mountains 


and arriving in Winnipeg - the Prairies. 
This was the first time we had such a clear view of our small village (outside of Winnipeg).
