It finally snowed! Well, last Sunday – I’m behind on posting, and I wanted a picture to show you. The one above was snapped just this morning, so it was still pretty dark – but you get the idea…everything is so much prettier! No more piles of bare dirt and cement! I heaved a great internal sigh of relief, somewhat unexpectedly. I wasn’t sitting around wishing it would hurry up and snow already, but now that it has, it is time to rest. The yard is done for the season, tucked up in bed. The trees I ordered arrived last Friday and got planted on Saturday, and now are snug up for the winter as well (and I did, in the end, get my Adirondack (improved manchurian) apricot, though not any Russian Olives).
