How lovely this looks! We had about six inches of snow fall overnight,so it's nice to look at these colourful leaves. Thanks Ron.

Ozy; In answer to your question,which I just now saw when I went back to look at the misty morning, I live in Mid Western Ontario, Canada.(Yes, Ellen,as if the man doesn't know Ontario is in Canada!)Lived and worked in Toronto for 20 years,then moved to the country in 1987.

Reminds me of a trip to Vermont New England. Doesn't look like bleak mid winter anyway.

The plantations look so much better now that the council have down all those wild rhododendrons, a lot of Wiganers was against it at first but they have been prove wrong.

Thanks for the reply Ellen. I wasn't expecting Canada actually, I was thinking more along the lines of Massachusetts, or one of the other northern U.S. states. You'll no doubt remember the SS Edmund Fitzgerald going down . I'm guessing that you don't live too far from the shores of Lake Superior, as looking at my old school atlas, it appears to be a bit bleak further north. All the best for 2017 my dear.

Ozy; whatever made you think I might live in New England? Not that I would object to that, but I'm still English enough to be glad to be a Canadian citizen. I do remember the loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald, but I remember the song more clearly! However, I must take you to task because your map-reading skills are sadly lacking! It's Lake Huron we live about fifteen miles from, and, snowfall aside,its not at all bleak here...but how old is your old school atlas? We live in an area of mixed farming and are really quite civilized!(lol)
Since we are today approaching a New Year, I wish you and all Wiganworlders a very happy and prosperous one!
