Accck! It is beautiful, but I'm glad we live here in Maryland and it was sunny and 65! Snow really shows the outline and texture of a garden. Bundle up ;-)

Hi Bernideen
Now, this is a surprise - were you planning a wintry tea by chance? :-)
We are having a beautiful and warm weekend for our Canadian Thanksgiving.
Hope the snow doesn't last....not yet!

What a difference a night can make. I am glad we were not there for this. It is pretty to look at but can be bad in other ways.I am sure you are used to this living there.

Karen said...

Your pictures are beautiful, especially the first one.

No snow for us, north of Denver. Just rain. . . all day long.

Oh my goodness! How pretty it looked ... but I guess you'd like to enjoy autumn first for a bit, wouldn't you?! :)

Martha said...

Winter comes quickly doesn't it!

Is this snow for real?

Johanna said...

Dear Bernideen,
hopefully it will thauw soon. This was a short year, wasn't it? I remember that you had long time snow in spring and now this early snowfall in fall. Amazing. Now your squirrels will show up more in the morning. That seems really the end of Tea in the garden outside. But at least we can continue inside with a warm fire in the oven and hot tea. I wish you a lot of sunny days.
Best greetings, Johanna

HOPE IT MELTS SOON, YOUR GARDEN HAS TOO MUCH LIFE IN IT YET FOR ALL YOUR FLOWERS TO WITHER AWAY. HAVE A NICE SNOWY WEEKEND, WITH A NICE CUP OF HOT TEA. RIZZI

Oh, my! Are you ready for a long winter?

Rosemary said...

Oh my goodness! It's too early for that! That's more than 'frost on the pumpkin'! Beautiful pictures.... but I'm not ready for snow!

Marilyn said...

Love how the hummingbird feeder just pops out of the one picture. No snow here, but we are lower! Time for some heat inside.♥♫

Kathryn Ross said...

What?? Say it ain't so! Not really ready for snow! Where do you live, anyway? We're in Indian Summer - 80 degrees today for our Harvest Carnival at church.

How can you do a garden tea with snow on the ground?

Joy!

Wow, we're having a heat wave here in the Midwest! It has been in the 80s for over a week, really odd weather.

I thought it odd when it snowed in October when we visited our daughter in New England two years ago. But it was just a little snow.

That really was a blizzard you had!

We had lots of rain but no snow! Your yard looks lovely.
