Spotted this fascinating "blossom" within Gowlland Tod Provincial Park on Vancouver Island
(which has subsequently been identified as "clematis vitalbae" - many thanks to fellow blogger, MaryAustria)
... and here the Tod Inlet is frozen over
(a regular visitor to the park who was there on the day commented that she has lived
in the area for more than 20 years and has never seen this occur before)
and a frozen/thawing creek
aahh.... so many delights on which to feast the eyes (and camera lens)!
Linking up (with grateful thanks to the respective hosts) to:
