Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog post yesterday. It may be a few days before I can respond to the comments but I appreciated everyone of them.
And now, to fall fancies.
On Saturday and Sunday, we had our first snow where we live near Johnson City, New York. This was nothing compared to some of the regions in what is called the "snowbelt" but snow will cover our ground soon enough.
How much snow? Check this out (look for "Binghamton").
While taking in some plants Saturday (we had our first frost later that night), I saw the first of the snow falling. Of course I had to post the fact that it was snowing on Facebook.
It was the first finger of winter, tapping us softly on the shoulder, saying "hey, look at me! I'm BAAAACCK!"
Soon, I'll only mention the weather if "it's NOT snowing!"
Meanwhile, trees continue to turn.
This is called a "burning bush", for good reason.
I was almost going to post a tribute to my dead flowers, but I thought I would save that for another day.
How is the weather where you live?
