Yep, we had our first snowfall last Saturday!
I didn't realize we'd had enough snow to make a snow person until I saw this snow person. I took the photo on Sunday and although the snow person still had a nose and scarf, it had no eyes or mouth so it couldn't see me or smile.
The birds were acting crazy on Friday. How did they know it would snow the next day? These birds are chickadees (photos 2 and 4 working clockwise) that I photographed on Sunday at a wildlife area. Photo 3 is a dried-out wild cucumber (Echinocystis lobata) that has dropped it's seeds to sprout next spring. Notice it has a light dusting of snow. There's a tad more snow on the mountain ash berries (Sorbus) and sedum
