Blue Heron catching lunch in Stanley Park

The Winter has been coming down suddenly in Vancouver, and nobody in Vancouver is prepared for snow or damn cold winter. Ever. Temperatures have plunged below the freezing mark across the whole province and the Saturday weather forecast prepared us for few days of flurries and snow (5-10 cm until Thursday afternoon).

I got over the arctic air discomfort and I went out in Stanley Park for a walk. It is snowing and the idyllic scenery with mushrooms,  roses, grass, accent plants and fall leaves still coloring the landscape inspired me to write this post.

The snow over lawn and walkways are still soft and the town began to cover with a fluffy snow blanket.

Lost Lagoon is getting pounded by ice and snow right now. Like me, the birds (geese, ducks, seagulls, Blue Heron) were surprised by this winter. They walk on getting their feet colder and colder, trying to find food, or dance with sparkling snowflakes in the air.

The water has frozen and fortunately the birds were fed by "Stanley Park" administrative staff.  The Great Blue Heron seems to be wildly busy catching lunch from the plastic bag...

... and the seagulls and ducks perform Ice Hockey and apply an offensive strategy  following lines when predict where the food will go  (seems particularly important to let the grains cross right in front of their bodies).

The glittering snow blurs the shape of the objects it coats, makes the paths unbearable and covers the town in a delicate veil of snowflakes.

Inspired by the scenery, I write this lyrics


"First Snow" 

``Announced two days ago by a whispering wind, white snowflakes are dancing up and down
And from the heaven are falling quiet, blurring the woodland around.

The fallen snow makes quite a show which slowly enlightens and turns the scenery white,
like a fluffy blanket that hides the garden and covers the mountains into a surreal light. ``
