I still had more leaves to rake as all the trees hadn't even finished turning colours. When I got up the next morning what do I see - SNOW!
Snow on the lattice and in the clouds over the mountains.
Snow on the herb garden that I just finished covering with leaves.
On the grapes and trellis.
The trees aren't finished dropping their leaves.
In fact, this apple tree hasn't even finished changing colours!
The cherry tree is still loaded with leaves.
Another grape trellis with the snowy mountains in the distance.
Mountain ash berries wearing tall white hats.
My poor Coco, all covered with snow.
I used to have a dog named Coco that looked exactly like the statue.
We received about 2-3" in our first dump of snow. Hopefully, it'll disappear before long but if not - get ready for WINTER!
