Fall Runs Smack Dab Into Winter

Here in Virginia, the leaves have not yet reached their fall color peak, and yet, there is a distinct feeling of winter in the air, and on the ground.  Yes, that’s really snow…several inches of snow, in October.

We’re still harvesting our pumpkins, squashes and late vegetables.   Here’s my lovely backyard pumpkin patch.  So much for the phrase “frost on the pumpkin”.

I captured some lovely photos of the fall foliageand brilliantly blooming flowers in their blanket of snow.  So I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.

The kids, and the dog had a blast playing outside today.  The poor pup wasn’t too sure what to make of all the snow.

The snow person, “Wilson”, ended up being a fun concoction.  The newly fallen leaves stuck to the newly fallen snow as it was being rolled…and well, he just looks like he has some issues.  Although the marigold necklace is a nice touch.

We wrapped our day up with a little snack to go along with the fall meets winter theme of the day.

S’mores and hot cocoa!

We left the gardens and snow in good hands though!
