Last Sunday, pre-full moon, was even warmer at plus 6 C than today's plus 1 C. Walked to No'side Fredericton across the ex-train bridge and then unpriver on the trail past were Gibson's engine roundhouse used to stand to Carleton Park. Gulls at the water's edge. Evidence all around of the rain-filled floodwaters of recent weeks.
The scattered young, city-planted maples near the boat ramp all supported small ice-structures hanging of their truynks and lower branches. They drew me closer to photograph the trees and ice.
Once I got close enough to really see the trees I was struck by the floodwater-forced weavings in the wefts of branches. From the downriver-backside the branches were clearly visible.
From the front, the upriver side, the weaving is truly great: a tightly pressed arrangement of grasses, corn stalks and cobs filling the fan of tree branches.
