In August nature is green and full of life.
In December, just about everything has prepared itself for the long winter ahead.
Here are photos from Le Marais de Touraine near Gatineau Québec from both August and December.
Other December photos:
With March comes in the pleasant spring,
When little birds begin to sing;
To build their nests, to hatch their brood.
With tender care provide them food.
And summer comes with verdant June;
The flowers then are in full bloom,
All nature smiles, the fields look gay;
The weather’s fine to make the hay.
September comes; the golden corn
By many busy hands is shorn;
Autumn’s ripe fruits, an ample store,
Are gathered in for rich and poor.
Winter’s cold frost and northern blast —
This is the season that comes last
The snow has come, the sleigh-bells ring,
And merry boys rejoice and sing. -unknown poet
