First touch of winter
I woke several times during the night on Tuesday. By Wednesday morning, we had two to three centimeters (about an inch) of snow on the ground. It has all melted now, but it took a day. Last evening I still saw snow on the back yard, atop the cedar mulch I laid on the weekend.
Ash has bagged the leaves; they'll go to the city composting site on Friday.
Meanwhile, I investigate ponds and plants for next year :-)
