When I let Heidi out before bed last night, the beauty of the snow caught my eye, so I got my camera out and took some photos. Nancy Bond has not started her First Snowfall Project yet, but I am including a link to her site, so that you can watch to see when she gets it going. I don't keep up well with blogs I like, and don't know how long she has been writing on her new blog, Leaping Greenly, but it sure is beautiful!
I overwintered the pot with 2 rosemary plants in it last year, but it was pretty dry in the spring, and took a long time to recover. I decided to start fresh next year. I am feeling bad for the plants, though, and may change my mind.
This morning, I went out to see the snow. I didn't hear the official number, if there was one, but it doesn't look like an inch of snow fell. On the south side of the house, it was already melted at 8:00ish.
The east side of the house:
I can't remember who suggested I put sand in this chicken for the butterflies. I didn't get to it yet, but put this rock in, thinking they may like landing on it. This is the area to the east of the vegetable garden.
I didn't get as many vegetable garden posts done this summer. It wasn't the best year, but we did get some food grown. I hope the asparagus along the fence in the right of the photo grows well. The kale is loving this weather.
I am slowly accepting the change in seasons, but still looking forward to that day in December when the days start getting longer. Now, I am going to see about cleaning my kitchen cupboards before we go get KJ from my parents' house. Have a great weekend!
