Garden Tuesday: Guess What Happened?

It was 45 degrees at midnight last night.

And guess what was going on at 3AM?  Here's how it looked at 7AM:


That's right.  The first snow of the season.  We got about 2", and it mostly stuck to leaves and grass.

BTW, remember Dan's project on the patio?  Here it is:

He made a 4 foot square fire pit, and has been collecting fallen branches for the inaugural bonfire the night after Thanksgiving.  Of course, I didn't get out there in the rain last week, after he finished it, because, well, I'm funny about going outside in the cold rain to take pictures.  So I had to race outside this afternoon and take a picture in the 30 degree snow.  Silly me, thinking sunshine would return soon.

Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

They were calling for it here, but it didn't arrive.

He's going to hate finishing that job in the snow and cold.

We got some of that stuff too Marjie. I was not a happy camper when I saw it this morning. Not much but...

I actually started to lay out a fire pit too. So far all I have arranged are the bricks. If Dan wants more "experience," he is more than welcome to "play" with mine, lol...

If not, I'll be waiting until next year:)

Happy Garden Tuesday, Marjie...

P.S. A glimpse of my almost fire pit will be in tomorrow's post:)

Snow? Lucky. My kids would be thrilled!

The fire pit looks awesome. Can't wait to see it in action.

We have perfect weather for a fire pit. Smores sound pretty good too.
