the winter flowerToronto just sustained a dramatic, but intensely beautiful ice storm. The city was covered in a thick layer of ice. Every tree became a sculpture. The sunlight and street lights made the trees’ ice covered branches glow.

Above is an image of the Leslie Street Spit covered in ice. A hamamelis intermedia, a winter blooming flower, sits at the foreground: an homage to this sleepy but productive time of year.

Happy new year, 2014!
