Canadian Firefighters Memorial, December 28, 2013

A lot more snow fell since I last took pictures of the memorial. The three pine trees in the north east corner of the site have been wrapped for the cold weather. I call them the three sisters. That's not official. For some reason that came to me when I first saw them.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, December 1, 2013

The theme of the pictures taken today is white. There was snow on the ground and the sky was overcast. There were footprints in front of the wall indicating someone from Alberta or Saskatchewan had come to find a name on the wall. The light was such that a photograph of the snow would not have shown that. The statue seems to look really green but that just may be due to the amount of white providing contrast to the patina on the statue.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, November 17, 2013

Mid November and the weather is rain. There are shrub type plants that took some time to get going but seem to have suddenly put on a growth spurt in the last two or three months. Most of the plants that are part of the memorial's landscaping are thriving, but at the same time it seems like they have no clue as to the climate they are living in. They may settle in better come the spring of 2014. We'll see.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, October 27, 2013

I should have gone to take pictures last week but I didn't go because of illness. The maple trees changed colour and dropped their leaves very rapidly. You'll see from the pictures that they have about half their leaves left. The oak trees have changed to a warm orange. The others have dropped most of what they had. The larger trees in the nearby parks are just about empty.
