Snowy Surprise

This weekend Vancouver got hit with a delicate layer of snow overnight. Snow is such a rarity here and I'm always excited by it. The winter weather in Vancouver is usually just above freezing, with rain and clouds for months at a time. We've been having colder than usual weather here lately, and I love it because it means more sun and snowy surprises like this one.

I woke up on Saturday to find a lovely little layer of snow on my balcony. It's nothing compared to what we get back home in Ontario, but here it was enough to affect traffic. So I decided against taking a trip to the gym and instead decided to sip some tea and watch the birds frolic around the birdfeeder.

They were so adorable in the snow that I just had to share. The juncos were excited to find a feeder with seeds, and were even jumping around on the balcony above and knocking down snow.

Just look at those little footprints!


  1. oh wow, this does make me miss snow. and the way light shines on snow. I love those falling flakes in the photo.

    1. I know what you mean Britta. There's something really magical about snow that I've missed while living in a different climate. It'll all be melted in a day or two, but it was a lovely change!
