Finally!

Our first snow arrived early this morning and it kept snowing until mid-afternoon. We probably got about eight inches. Not much, I know, but enough to blanket the gardens and brighten the view.

I took a walk to look at how a simple event such as a snowfall can transform things – even sleeping perennials.

Here’s a salvia perovskia looking rather pretty.

And check out this coreopsis in my neighbor’s garden. It’s zagreb, I believe.

This is a scotch broom, looking very pine-ish.

Clematis Viticella “Polish Spirit” is contrasting well with its white arbor trellis.

And this perennial aster is enjoying its new snow blanket.

They say we’ll get rain in a couple of days that will wash all this away. I wish it would stick around for a while.

      It is quiet, CJ. That’s why I love winter in this community. In the summer it’s full of impatient tourists who crowd the beaches and set off fireworks almost every night.

      We definitely enjoyed it. We spent the day skiing. It started off very cold but warmed up as the day went on. I guess that rain is coming today, though. Bummer.

    love it. Everything is so beautiful! We got a bit of snow – about an inch or two – just enough to make a mess, but not enough to sled. and of course on a Friday night – so no school (thus work) cancellations. 😦

      It’s much warmer today, and we’re expecting rain, so I guess our white moment was short lived. I sure hope we get more soon.
