Early Snow, Green Leaves

Many of the leaves on the trees have not yet turned color and fallen, yet last evening was our first snow of the season. The photos below were taken around my home and studio in the early morning light.

The echinacea plants are wearing tall, snowy caps.

The yew bushes simply bend.

A view from my studio window. Snow was sifting down in the early sunshine, giving the air a dreamy quality.

A few minutes later, the sky was intensely blue.

The clothesline.

Now, in the early afternoon, the snow is melting away.

Transitory pleasures, but certain to be repeated. This is just the beginning!

Today ~ Country Life, City Life

Today we walked the back 26 acres, and then visited the city.

New Camera

During last winter, I took photos of a snowy, ice-lantern-lit labyrinth in 9 degree F weather with my digital camera. The camera never recovered from that experience. I had been limping along with it since then, so imagine my delight when I found a new ELPH camera under the tree!

Here are a couple of ornament photos taken with the new camera.
