Winter afternoon walk along the Quay.

After a day of repeated rain showers the sun came out in full force around three this afternoon, so I grabbed my camera and went out to explore.
 Check out these crocuses making an early appearance.
 Crows looking for a mid afternoon snack.
 Love this orange Witch Hazel plant.
 This reminds me or spiders or maybe an alien creature.
 The Fraser River is running high.
 Love the blue sky and white railing reflection on the water that looks almost like a blue Zebra!
 Check out that huge log boom the tug is pulling, halfway down you can see another tug helping it to negotiate the bend in the river.
 Snowdrops spotted in Rita`s garden.
So delicate and pretty.
Love the look of the clouds in the sky.
A yellow Witch Hazel that is a bit behind the orange one.  This one is amongst some larger trees.
Tug heading into the sun and towards the mill.
Sun lower on the orange Witch Hazel.

These rhododendrons usually start blooming in February so they are a bit early this year.
A pair of crows chatting in the tree above as they hunt for a snack.
Roses still trying to bloom in January.
Lichens and moss on the tree trunk.

What a beautiful day to get out for a walk. We are getting ready to be hit with the snowstorm, no walks for me.

That does look very mild weather! I have leaves up, but no flowers.
