Snow. On Saturday we got about 8 inches of heavy, wet snow. It just didn’t feel right. The trees were still filled with colorful leaves and it wasn’t very cold, so why were we getting snow dumped on us?
White impatiens sheltered under a tree, hadn’t yet been hit by frost.
Our garden reminded me of a fairy tale snow garden.
The day before this crazy weather, the news had been warning of the coming storm, so I snuck into our neighbors yard to clip a few branches! shhhh, it’s a secret. Could I get arrested for sneaking a few branches?
I wasn’t ready to say good bye to the pretty leaves and wanted to make a loose arrangement for the dining room. I speared apples with skewers and added them to the vase.
Then I decided to sit here and have some cider and a snack and watch the snow falling outside. Enjoying Autumn inside, while watching a snow storm outside was a new experience for me.
I even dug out this old embroidered placemat.
Autumn is just too pretty to leave us so soon!
Pears would have worked in this arrangement and adding fruit is an easy way to celebrate the season. It looks so pretty too.
Our neighbor was waving at me from his window while I was sneaking. those branches.
