Here in the San Juan Islands it’s been snowing in big fat drops. I found these flowers buried in partially-melted snow this morning.
All this cold weather coupled with very windy conditions make it absolutely freezing! I prefer hat and sweater weather, myself.
This picture of the first snowfall reminds me of the book cover from Snow Falling on Cedars (which takes place in Puget Sound, WA).
*That’s cool* a random fact
Naturally occurring organic compounds called thujaplicins give cedar wood it’s distinctive smell that is highly unattractive to insects, moths and pests.
