Let it Snow!

This is a view of my Sunday afternoon garden. We finally got a “real” snow---about 2-3 inches. Many areas south of us and into the mountains got much, much more; well over a foot in some areas. I’m thankful for the little bit of moisture my garden will receive, and for a beautiful start to the holiday season!

A quick reminder: if you are interested in learning about landscape design, then join me at Denver Botanic Gardens this Sunday, December 7th, from 9:00-4:00, for my presentation of Landscape Design Theory.

Go here for more information and to register for the class.

Gorgeous photo. Looks like the front of a Christmas card - just need a wreath sitting on the bench.

We're still waiting for our first snow that sticks here in Buffalo. I'm okay with waiting.

I wonder what the weather will be like when I'm up there in a couple of weeks for my grandson's college graduation! If I was in town the week before instead, I'd take your class.

Jim, I always thought you folks in Buffalo were up to your necks in snow from October through April! Glad to hear it's not QUITE that bad ;-)
Glad you liked the photo. Thanks for the tip; I'll try to stage one with a wreath sometime this winter so I can use it as a card next year!

Aiyana, December weather here is VERY unpredictable. Sunday it was snowing, today it's 72 degrees! Bring layers to wear, lots of layers...

Today was rainy and over 40 degrees. We have no snow on the ground. We've only had 35 inches for all of November - looks like you had around that in this one storm.

We'll get our due, I'm sure. Just a half-hour south of here, in the ski areas along Lake Erie they've had 80+ inches in November. We consider ourselves having dodged a bullet.

Hey, Jim, glad to hear you didn't get hit with that nasty ice storm.

Lucky for me we only got a few inches of snow here, most of the white stuff is in the mountains at the ski resorts, where it should be. We did, however, get the cold. Minus 18F last night set a new record for the date. Brrrrrr!
