Odds and ends before winter.

I suspect that the next several months will be predominately white, and I thought I’d post these few photos that were taken just before that starts. (Of course, I still reserve the right to post a few later that I saved from the warmer seasons too.)

Winter’s here; might as well enjoy it!

Winter has now come to our area. Here are a few more shots from the first snow. It is snowing again now and I’m sure there will be more to post later to be enjoyed (hopefully) by those who don’t participate in cold winters and maybe not so much by those who do. The two weather fronts that are here now will be heading east and south from here bringing with them snow and very cold temperatures, so get ready! Please drive slowly and carefully and stay safe!

Final bursts of color

Yesterday, the forecast was for a heavy snow during the night, but a quick look at the rain gauge this morning showed that we received an inch of rain instead. And near the rain gauge the Pansies were covered with raindrops.

Tonight, the previous forecast seems to be coming true: the ground and trees are white and the air is filled with beautiful big snowflakes.

Tree skeleton art

In a remote and secluded canyon in the back country and seen only by the wild things of the forest, Nature has chosen to display this piece of Her art. For whose eye has it been created and what critic might venture there to gaze upon it?
