We've had strange weather lately. Last weekend was unseasonably warm (60 degrees Fahrenheit) here in Ontario, but friends wintering down South reported that it was in the 45 degree F range. Most of our snow melted last weekend and we enjoyed long walks free of cumbersome winter gear. It's snowing again, which is good, because I love a proper winter with cold weather and snow. I've learned to trade off fashion to be warm and dry, and that is the key to a happy winter. Diamond Snowflakes is an homage to a true Canadian winter.
