The First Frost..and the First Snow!

This morning, around 2:30 AM it began to snow. It produced just enough snow to cover everything in a beautiful coat of white. What you can not see, underneath the snow, is the frozen sheet of ice. It rained hard last night before the temperatures dropped and the rain turned into ice and snow.The funny thing about all of this is this is not only our first snow of the season, but also our very first frost of the year!

Above, Mullen leaves stacked with snow. The funniest sights of the day were all of the still-blooming plants covered in snow. Below, a yellow cone-flower.

And the strangest combination - a  blooming sunflower in the snow!

It was fun! But all my sunflowers are long gone, so that picture is a beauty. :-) Now it's back to the rain...
