I was out playing Go last evening, and when I rolled in around 1:00 AM, snow hadn’t started, but by 7:00 this morning, our world was covered with a couple centimetres of fresh snow. I took the camera out to capture the snow-covered garden.
This fall I decided to leave the sunflowers in the ground over winter. They look strangely beautiful covered in snow.
The Black-eyed Susans are also striking with a snow hat.
I caught a glimpse of Cowboy Tom out there, riding the winter range. Everybody said he’d be the first to head south to his wintering grounds, but Old Tom, as weathered as an old piece of wood, still loves riding through the fresh snow.
Tom will make winter camp out beyond the old Imagination Station in among the spruces.
