This morning started off cold, one of the coldest of the fall season. Temperatures hovered around forty degrees when I headed back to the barn to feed the ponies and my basil still looks fine so it didn't dip to freezing overnight. I worked outside around the barn and gardens and woodpile until a cold drizzle turned into a cold rain. A few minutes ago, I noticed the cold rain had turned to snow! Too warm to stick but snow nonetheless. Sometimes big fluffy flakes! Reminds me of an October snow about twenty years ago when we actually got 8-9" of heavy snow that blanketed the October oranges. Created very surreal, beautiful colors. The snow didn't stick around long but long enough I did a lovely painting that was purchased by a close friend.
