Dull and Wet

A very dull wet day in the Bella Coola Valley.  Hard to find much winter colour but these rose hips from the Nootka Rose (Rosa nutkana) are one plant that can be relied on for a bit of winter colour.  They don't seem to be the favourite for birds, or else there are so many around the birds never get around to eating them all, because they last all winter on the bushes around our place.  Although we did have a pair of Ruffed Grouse hanging around in our thicket for a few days so I suspect they were picking away at them.

We had a serious rain today as the temperature was in the plus 1 and 2 C range most of the day and the freezing level has gone way up.  Hope we are getting some fresh snow in the Eastbranch area where all the winter activities take place.  Grizzly
