Yup, we finally got snow today. It probably won't last, but it's supposed to continue through tomorrow. The picture on the left is the apple tree outside my kitchen door at 3:30 this afternoon. All the pictures below were taken next, and the picture on the right is the same apple tree at 5:50 pm, just as it was getting dark.
So Maggie and I went for our walk despite the snow and my pulled muscle. It's better if I exercise it every so often. It's not too bad as long as I don't twist my hip. The picture looks out of focus, but look at Maggie. She's not blurry! It's just that the snow was coming down fast by then!
This is how the snow was beginning to gather on the small plant called Herb Robert. It's a rather ubiquitous little member of the geranium family.
Since this is the first snow, all of the fragile foliage is still upright, and I just like the way the wet snow catches on each leaf. All this grass will soon be beaten down and hidden under the heavy weight. Maybe even tomorrow!
Ellen and I are going out for our first monthly adventure tomorrow. I'll be sure to take the camera.
