Mosaic Monday – Taste Of Winter
It’s Mosaic Monday and this has certainly been a week. The Pacific Northwest has been hammered by crazy weather. Seattle has had a foot of snow on hills. People were skiing or sledding down hills. The next day they had freezing rain. Now warmer rain is turning everything into mush.
We, on the other hand had a dusting of snow…my orange kitty’s first snow. That was fun to watch. See the video on my Garden Bloggers Bloom Day post. The snow turned to 5 inches of warm rain over two days with high winds. Now it is just raining, and will continue to rain.
These are some of the images of the snow that we had.
The first group shows my Raja in his first snow Doing the Meerkat.
This was the view of a snowy garden bench through my front window.
Here is Raja again, by the remains of my Halloween pumpkins, now covered in snow.
I put this bouquet of flowers outside, because I am allergic to the Stargazer lilies and goldenrod that were in a bouquet we bought, and I was sneezing like mad.
The contorted filbert has a coating of snow, and my orange kitty is just barely visible on the fence.
Snow also covered my rhodies, like this one.
This flowering quince is now barren and covered with snow, but in about three months will have apricot colored blooms.
