At 8:00 a.m. today, I was in the kitchen getting stuff out of the fridge to feed my cats (again), when I turned and happened to glance out through the drapes to the sliding doors that lead outside. I was rather surprised to see snow on my deck, and nearby rooftops. We were out last night for choir practice and it was pretty cold, but even then we weren’t assuming that snow would fall.
Silly us! This is southern Ontario, in Canada. Of course it can snow—any time after Labour Day!
I grabbed my camera, which I haven’t done in some time, and snapped a couple of shots.
Here’s one, of our fall mums, getting a bit of a shock:
This photo seemed a nice juxtaposition of seasons. The plastic butterfly is one of a few designed to keep the birds from banging into my windows in the summertime.
And lastly, here’s a different kind of snow. It’s a costume-jewelry pin that belonged to my grandmother. I always called it the “snowflake” pin. Here you see it entangled with a silver chain attached to a Miraculous Medal. My mother asked me to disentangle this and it only took me a few hours with some coconut oil lubricant and a straight pin.
I am very persistent.
Have a lovely day – snowy or not.
