Let it Snow, Let it Snow

November 17th, 2008

This morning we woke up to a winter wonderland here at Chiot’s Run. It sure makes the day much brighter! We loaded up Lucy in the car to take her to vet to get those staples taken out and we enjoyed listening to some great Christmas music on the way! When we got home I snapped a few quick photos of some blooms covered in snow. Soon enough there won’t be any color left in the garden.

Aptly named, Carpet of Snow Alyssum.

A few marigolds are still hanging on, although I think this will be the end of them.

Kelly over at Brooklyn’s Blog posted about the snow they got, they got even more that we did up in Northern Indiana.

Anyone else out there get any measurable snow accumulation?

    No measurable accumulation here, it has all melted as of this morning but it is snowing right now as I type this.

    Less than an inch here in Pittsburgh, PA over the weekend – but then we’re not that very far away anyway.

    It snowed most of the day Monday and it’s late Monday PM as I write this and the ground has just turned white.

    Stunning photos! It snowed in BC Canada 2 weeks ago, and then melted. I took some photos on the farm. I always laugh when I see horses walking around with snow on their manes (cause they look kinda old and grey from a distance). Did your flowers survive the meltdown?

    I don’t think any will survive. We’ve been getting more and more snow (we now have 5 inches). I’m thinking this is the official end to the season (or the beginning of the next one!).
