More Snow!

I just can't let you go without a few more pictures of the snow!  And I was glad that at least a few of you had a positive reaction.  It's almost all gone now, though we did have a bit more today.  And I know it'll be probably several more weeks now before we have any more.  I actually enjoy these early fall days of snow and freezing temperatures, much better than those -30° temperatures + wind that we get in January!

The Sumach in the front yard are the brightest fall colours around.

But the snow accumulates the most on the evergreen branches.

I liked the way this small Hawthorn had collected the snow, while the Oaks behind it still have their leaves.

The snow was wet enough it just stuck to all the branches.

This was the garden; it's pretty well had it for the year now, even though I'll do a bit more clean-up in the next week of two.

Snow on the heads of the Coneflowers.

And our chairs under the apple tree - my favourite place to sit in warmer months!

I don't understand how -1°C on a wet day in October can feel so much colder than -5°C on a sunny day in January!  But it does.  I'm ready to dig out the long johns and a scarf to stay warm.  But the forecast says we'll be back to decent weather at least for the next two weeks.

  1. A winter wonderland -- beautiful! The photo of the chairs beneath the apple tree is especially artistic -- can't wait 'til we get enough snow to whiten the ground. We did have our first flurries today.

  3. I like the snow on red leaves. Early snow is always a shock to the system and then we get used to it.

  5. These are really lovely. I do love the snow on the sumach - as long as it is in your yard and not mine. Seriously, I love snow on the last blossoms of the garden.

  6. More wonderful pictures; we rarely see autumn leaves and snow together in England. I really like that last shot, though I'm not able to explain just why. Maybe I'll enjoy the snow more once I'm retired and it's no longer compulsory to venture out into it!
