December has arrived and with it also a significant change in the weather.
November the 30th we had green grass,and a few hardy Johnny Jump-ups still in bloom.
December 1st.this is what we woke up to.
This is looking west from our yard.
We had about 4 inches of wet snow overnight.
The snow transformed everything into a winter wonderland.
This is at an Agriculture Research Station,just a block south of our home.
The evergreens were loaded with snow,as seen above and below.
Here is a different angle of the Slinky which is on the bird feeder.
By the way,this does help to keep the squirrels away from the feeder.
Another shot of the same Slinky,only this time taken with a lens which had some fog on it.
I kind of like the effect.
These Mountain Ash berries create a wonderful contrast against the snow.
Every branch is heavy with a layer of snow.
The seed heads of the Purple Coneflowers are wearing tall snow hats.
These pictures may look like they are taken in black and white,but they are really in full color.
I think the snow creates a look of old fashioned lace.on the trees.
In the background of the above picture is our Lake Minnewasta.
It is hard to tell that it is water,the colors are all so similar.
Just another scene of the snow covered trees.
We have had snow off and on all day today as well.
I was waiting for this already,the browns were getting a little boring.
Be exalted,O God above the heavens.
