The heat went on early this morning. We awoke to the pattering of rain and the blustering of wind, limbs and leaves. As the morning continued, the temperatures dropped and we saw the first snowfall of the season. I believe the weatherman would call it a "wintry mix" .... I just kept thinking, "Is this a trick or a treat?"
Grabbing my camera, I cracked the windows, opened the doors...even stepped out on the stoop for a few minutes. I felt like a kid in a candy store ~ new and pretty things to see every where I looked.
The small evergreen in our back yard had, I guess, tried to dress up as a deciduous tree for Halloween. The leaves he'd caught for his costume were quickly blowing away...and I imagine he was pleased to get back to acting like the sturdy tree that he is. This sudden climate change is no challenge for him!
I do love it when winter pushes her way onto the scene early and begins to strut her stuff with all the glorious fall colors for a back drop. It's a mis-match made in heaven!
The ground caught no fallen snow today....just piles and piles of wet, fallen leaves. It was a perfect day for blankets, hot tea, cooking and gazing lazily out the window. Welcome November.
