We received our first snowfall today! It is not all that unusual for us to have a few inches of snow in October, but it usually melts after a day or two. December is when our ground freezes and any new snowfall will stay with us on average through the end of March.
I took a walk around our trails with my camera to capture the wintery wonderland. The air was crisp and fresh; small, foraging birds were darting through the snowy cover and melting drops paused on the tips of leaves still clinging to their mother plant.
