WATER LIKE A STONE: SNOW ON SNOW
First snow fall of the season showed up this morning. A bit unusual so early in December. My walk this morning through the snow was a bit surreal; As I was only posting, a very short time ago, photos of the leaves beginning to change.
I love the first snow- especially when I can stay cozied up indoors and watch it drift down covering the neighborhood with a fresh, clean blanket.
It was only minutes ago, it seems, that my front yard looked like this.
This evening, it looked like this.
And not long ago the backyard was looking like this...
And this is how it looked this evening (from the front porch)
The back woods this morning
Even the dogs had a rousing good time in the snow. They seem to get so frisky when it's cool like this.
Oh, and do you think it's time to get rid of the pumpkins?
At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in season grows.
