The early snow on our fencerow outlines all the big boulders in white. It had only been snowing very lightly for an hour of two at this point.
Every seedhead of the False Sunflowers was decorated with a small cap of white.
By this point the snow in the meadow was starting to look a lot more white, like this on the Goldenrods. It's wet snow that's sticking to everything.
The snow always seems to show off the patterns of the branches in the old Apple trees.
And the butterfly in our garden now looks white. The heaviest snow is forecast overnight, and it may continue with renewed lake effect flurries for 2-3 days, so I may get some 'after' photos to show you the accumulation. Hope you all enjoyed this unique opportunity to see the beauty of winter!
It's the season for Christmas craft sales, so we headed for Priceville this morning and picked up some of our usual gifts - handmade mitts, Christmas ornaments, and this time some wooden toys. Of course a county sale like this comes complete with the chance to have coffee and a muffin, or even lunch. So I get to sit at a table enjoying my coffee and relax, while my wife visits her favourite vendors. (And every now and then I'm sent out to the car with purchases, or to find more cash). That's my kind of Christmas shopping!
