The first snow of the season is always something to get excited about! The mercury has been hovering around 20F for the most part of the day but the cold temperatures haven't quelled our enthusiasm or joy at the changing seasons.
First came the rain, followed by freezing rain and then overnight, it changed into snow. We got about 3 inches or so by this morning.
My echinacea is all done for this year. It did surprisingly well despite wildly fluctuating weather. But not everything is dull and dry. The young maple in the front yard is struggling to put on a show.
And, a tiny splotch in the backyard actually has some color!
Two ski resorts have already opened, making Colorado the first to open the ski season this fall. It's exciting even though I don't ski - the rest of my family does. If I feel up to it, I might try to stand up on Nordic skis again this year. We'll see!
It's been a really nice weekend so far!
