The First Snow!

"The snow came down last night like moths 
 Burned on the moon; it fell till dawn,
 Covered the town with simple cloths."
by Richard Wilbur from "First Snow in  Alsace

Not to worry, we have had many a snow in the High Country. It is here below the foothills where we have had extended summer - we got SNOW! Then of course we had immediate melt, just as we do here in Colorado. It was the melt that was so dazzling and diamond-like, and I wanted to share this sight with you.
Do you see the icy pearls?
Ah the yellow, the sun, the shadow- tonight we get more snow. At last November is here!

Lovely. Tomorrow should be even more (cough) colorful.

Pretty, Carol! We've had our first snow too--but it's slushy, and hard to move around in, so it's not inspiring me to take pictures. The snow has come all the way down the mountains, tho--so now they're mostly white with green peaking through instead of the other way around. :-)
