Snow Has Melted

 Rose leaves this morning

Yep, we got snow last week but NOTHING like Buffalo got. It did look and feel like winter, though. Today the temperature feels quite nice because it's above freezing and this morning there was no wind.  YAY!  Sadly, there's no sunshine either.

 Seeds of Japanese anemones

I looked for white this morning and discovered  a patch of fluffy Japanese anemone seeds and...
Grass and Annabelle hydrangea in background

small pockets of snow. It's almost gone!!

Leora said...

Beautiful and unusual finds. Glad you didn't get it as bad as Buffalo - that's sounded awful for some. I'm looking forward to 70's tomorrow (for one day only, says my husband).

Glad the first snow is away now. I hope there won't be any massive snow falls there.

Beautiful images! We've still got some on the ground. It'll depend on how long the warm up lasts.

Lowell said...

Love that first shot especially. Frame it and hang it! It's nice to have warmer weather, right? We'll hit 82 today. Then colder later in the week. But no snow. :)

Debbie said...

Nice photos of the leaves in your first image.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! I love that first shot, too! Wonderful leaves!! Hope you have a great new, snow-free week!!

Bob Bushell said...

I love the fist shot, it is gorgeous.

The rose leaves look as though they were dipped in gold. I am glad to hear the snow is leaving your neck of the woods … hopefully it will not rise to unmanageable levels at any time during the wintry season.

Andy said...

Strange weather eh. My grass is greener now than it has been all summer.

Glad you're able to enjoy a little respite.

It's amazing how quickly the snow disappears EG, mind you I suppose that all depends on how much falls!You got some excellent 'after the snow' shots here.

Sarah Beth said...

Glad you didn't get what Buffalo got! I've been watching all that snow on the news from my cozy chair here in Texas :) Unbelievable.
Nice shots -- especially the rose leaves -- all those thorns!

Malyss said...

There may not be any sunshine, but your photos look sunny to me!

RedPat said...

I just came back from a walk and it is +9˚C but like you say - so dull & grey!!

Ginny said...

What a wonderful post today! The color of the leaves...you can tell that something is coming. Japanese anemones, they look like poppy seeds on cotton balls. Have you shown the flowers before and I forgot? They sound beautiful.

I really like your first photo

marshaleith said...

Love the photo of the anemone seeds. And the rose leaves are gorgeous

Anvilcloud said...

We still have a bit left. It will go soon.

Kate said...

It's not even Thanksgiving here but I am already tired of snow although the warmer weather today has melted a lot of the ice!!

Judy said...

I am glad the snow has gone, even if it is only for a while... I know it will be back sometime in the next 6 weeks...

Chandra said...

Hi Tina,
Hope you're enjoying the snow melting.
The birdhouse looks really pretty.
The A. Hydrangea looks great too.
We have one in the front yard, though I don't know if it is A. Hydrangea or just a Hydrangea.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)

Pamela Gordon said...

That's about all we have here too and it's mild today with rain coming tomorrow. I rather like this shift to warmer weather.

Cloudia said...

Love your shots of the leaves and the lighting is just perfect!

Michelle said...

I have to say that I love dried hydrangeas. Beautiful!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Beautiful images. I am pretty sure you will be getting more snow.We are getting some right now,but it started with freezing rain,which makes driving treacherous.

Jack said...

Gosh, nada, nothing. I would have expected that the snow that hit Buffalo would have given Ontario a coat of snow, too.

Randy said...

Our little bit of snow was gone a while back but our leaves did not fair as well.

Felicia said...

we haven't gotten any snow at my house in Pa but they are calling for some Wednesday. I hope so, I'm anxious for the first snow to come.

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous images!

Margaret Adamson said...

Glad your snow didn't stay for you. Love the colours in the first shot. Mellow.

maryaustria said...

Gorgeous shots! I love the second one!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Ours is gone today.
My friends in Muskoka had somewhere around 125cm in places. Now the wind is blowing all my stuff about. sigh.

Gail Dixon said...

I'm glad you didn't get what Buffalo got. Wow, that was scary. The golden rose leaves are quite beautiful. Hope the wind and snow stay away from you for a while.

Carver said...

Lovely shots of late fall/early winter. I also love the tractor in the next post.

eileeninmd said...
