It Finally Snowed
It is February and it finally snowed here in Amherst. Generally we have snow by Christmas and substantial accumulation by now, but not this year. Up until now we have only had a couple of one inch dustings. Yesterday's was only about 4" but it was enough to have to shovel and plow so it counts. This is the first time I have seen my new yard and gardens covered in snow. Not as beautiful as in full bloom, but pretty in its own way. There was a gorgeous bright red Cardinal flitting around but he wouldn't let me close enough to get a good pic. Too bad.
