As I mentioned in my Playing in the Leaves post, I was able to be at the Colorado home to take in the magical changing of the leaves for the first time in a long time. Shortly after leaving Colorado to return to Louisiana’s heat and humidity (ugh!), the last gasp of Fall left and was replaced with the first snowfall. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I missed that. So I asked John to take a few quick pictures so that I (and you <g>) could enjoy the setting from afar. Here they are —
An almost perfect Christmas card scene with snow on the large blue spruce tree across the street
What a difference in the picture of the aspen tree here compared to the golden-leaved tree there just a few days before. And the rose blooms of Smelling the Roses is now replaced with a soft blanket of snow.
As you can see in the pictures, the snow was already melting from the road and driveway by the time John got out to take the pictures. And it’s interesting that after those few days of cold, the weather will now be in the 60’s during the day there. Sounds lovely to me, too. Maybe next year I will be able to spend more time in the late Fall in Colorado to see the first snowfall for myself.
