December 8th snow - part 2

We have been having coolish weather with light frost over night.  After the weekend we might be getting warmer temperatures.  I should be able to get out and finish the Autumn clean up, if it does not rain too much.

Snow fall of December 9th

We had 4 cm of snow over night.  I had to get photos before it disappeared in the rain by the end of the day.  Snow is such a novelty. here.  We are very lucky not to be suffering the storms, ice, snow and wind that is happening in the rest of the country.  Although, we have had our share of wind, rain and light frost over night, with power out in places.

Indoors on December 6th

 The alabaster figurine.  Would you hang this in your bathroom?
 Some of my vases.
 A painted vase.  Hope to get the album for painted vases, on my web page completed some day.
 My newest house plant, from the VCCC Christmas luncheon.
 My oldest plant.  It really is time I repotted it, but it seems to like being root bound.
A flare, captured while shooting through the front window when the sun broke through the clouds for a few moments.
It has been cool out in the garden, so I have not completed my Autumn clean up.

December 6th Sunset and lichens

 On the evening of December 6th we had a spectacular sunset, as seen from the front window.
 This is a seed on the front tree.
 More lichens with a bit of snow

Lichen with the last of the Autumn leaves on the morning of December 6th with the very blue sky.

December 6th morning light

 People walking on the trail that is covered in a light snow, seen through the tapestry of the last of the Autumn leaves, in the lovely morning light of December 6th.
 The golden morning light on the tree trunks and autumn leaves with the light snow covering the park, and the trail a darker color where the snow has melted.

 A bit of snow on the tree with one of the colorful leaves.
 Snow and a lichen on the tree with a good dark background to contrast with the golden light and white snow.
A close up of a leaf with the lovely blue sky blurred in the background.
