Friday In The Garden

Its been a while since you've seen a post here with that title, hasn't it? Things have changed a bit. We had our first snow of the season yesterday. This is what it looks like out back this morning.

And around in front of the house, I'll have to pour some warm water into that birdbath to melt the ice. Or maybe just let the birds practice their hockey, like that bird in the Charlie Brown comic strip, whose name is escaping me right now.

On the deck, where the winter sun doesn't reach, you can sort of see the half inch of ice that came down first. The poor pumpkins haven't even had a chance to develop their personalities yet.

The ice is causing the Rose of Sharon to tilt downhill. I think the plant may be splitting near its base. Not sure what to do about that. If you have any ideas, let me know.

And the ornamental grasses that usually look great for at least the first half of winter? They were so wet from the rain, that the ice and snow that followed completely flattened them. Some of them may stand (partly) back up, but they won't be putting on their best show this winter. 

I hear we have a big storm heading our way tomorrow. Yeah! I wonder where the snow shovels ended up last spring....

Have a great weekend, everybun. Weasley says curl up in the litterbox and stay warm and safe. And don't forget to enter our giveaway. Time's running out!

Snow?! YUCK!!! Sorry, if you like it but I'd rather it never come back. We got lots of rain yesterday, I guess we were spared. But it's getting darn cold.

The little yellow bird's name is WOODSTOCK!

Batten down the hatches, we're supposed to get more on Saturday. I'll be in full hibernation mode if that happens.

OMG! Snow already? Booooo
We had rain yesterday and the puddles were frozen over - other then that, no snow yet. Thank goodness! Sorry to hear you have snow already!

Wow, snow already? We've been promised snow this October but it hasn't happened and I'm glad. I don't mind snow in December - February but this is too early!

Poor pumpkins too

Hope the trick-or-treaters have long underwear. Brr...Sounds like Weasley has everything thought out.

So glad to hear Weazley is able to keep warm in his golden years! Thanks for taking such good care of him! I love when older bunnies get to live comfortably and happily! Glad you are staying warm. The pics are gorgeous!
