Sometime overnight, the rain turned to sleet and then snow. When I woke up this morning, there was a light coating of snow on everything. I took Meeko for his walk and then went out with the camera to get a few shots. I know that many of you like seeing the snow. This is a very light snowfall for my area. Above is a photo of my snapdragons that have been blooming in the garden. Very unusual.
Below is the sedum coated with a fine layer of snow. You can see it as it was yesterday, HERE. It hadn't changed at all since October 20th.
Below is a photo of my blanket flowers and Hungarian geraniums (at least that's what my neighbor calls them.) I posted a photo of these on November 9th for my Show and Tell Friday. You can see them HERE. They were still that beautiful yesterday. How quickly things change. I'm surprised that we've had any blooms this long.
Above is a picture of the park across the street. There's not much snow, but we do know that Old Man Winter is on his way. As of 7:30 pm it was minus 3 Celsius but felt like minus 10 with the windchill factor. I took Jordan to the farm today and the wind was nasty. The cold bit at our toes and fingers, even through boots and mittens.
Above is a photo of our neighbor's house. There was quite a little bit of snow on the roof, but nothing much on the sidewalks and street. The sidewalks were slippery though and I had to watch my step when walking Meeko.
Tonight it's to go down to minus 8 Celsius and tomorrow with the windchill factor it is to feel like minus 16. Yes, Old Man Winter is sneaking up on us finally.
I hope you enjoyed the photos of the snow in my garden and neighborhood. I'm sure before the winter is over you will see much more snow in my outdoor photos.
I hope that all of my friends in the United States have enjoyed Thanksgiving and are stuffed with delicious food right now. Please save a leftover piece of turkey for me.
