With surprise, shock, and a little disbelief I watched as rain drops turned to white wishes during church this past Sunday morning. As soon as the benediction was prayed, Puddles and I leaped with joy, bundled up, and hit the trails!
With goulashes on my feet (due to the previous rain) and a smile on my face, we trekked through the neighbourhood watching the snow fall on radiant wet autumn leaves.
The contrast between the two icons of the different seasons clashed in stunning beauty!
2 1/2 miles later, our trek came to an end, and the knitting began. We snuggled as I stitched.
A few hours later, I had a FO!
And it was time to hit the trails again… for the climes kept dropping and now the snow was sticking!
Even to this cobweb – how cool is that?
Bundled back up in Arctic Climes, Puddles in his snood, and snow boots this time, we took the back trail for a different view.
I switch to my cell phone camera as this trail is a little steeper and I didn’t want to drop my camera if I fell. Doing so also inspired a conversion from prose to verse ;-)!
Snow on latent blooms of summer days gone.
Snow on holly bushes nibbled by a fawn!
Snow in the distance where jagged cliffs and trees abound,
while frozen rain drops stick around.
Snow where blackberries used to be,
and on this stump, formerly a tree!
So the next time snow creeps up on you, be ready to get out, have fun, and wear your knitting, with these snowstorm quickies!

beautiful! thanks sharing your first snow of the season! glad you and Mr Puddles hit out for good hikes!
I’m still smiling! Even though we’re back up in the high 50s it was a really great day!!
What a lovely day!
Thank you – a blessing, indeed!
What fun. You did a great job of photographing so many beautiful sights where the snow made its mark. And I enjoyed your narration too. Thanks for sharing. Great knitting creations as well!
Thanks Juju. The close-ups are fun to take – shoot 10 and 1 is in focus, the rest go the way of the blowing wind.
Beautiful photos, Lindsay.
Thanks Lisa! We had a blast enjoying the snowfall!!
We received our first snow too! We have nearly a foot on the ground which is usually early for that much. I sure enjoyed all your photos.
A foot, now that is snow worth talking about! Puddles and I would be cross country skiing in no time flat!
