Shades of Winter Snow Beautiful

We had an unseasonably warm Autumn. Our trees and bushes started blooming again and I had the the a lucky fortune to watch my forsythia bloom twice last year!! It’s bright cheerful yellow is one my garden favorites. Then what do you know… first week of December Winter blew in with our first snow of the season! While I was quite enjoying Autumn, my favorite season, the first snowfall is so dreamy. The heavy snow blanketing the forsythia really made it feel like a winter fairy-tale.

    Kristy, what cool photos! How does the late fall blooming affect the plant the following spring? I’ve often wondered about such things. It’s really neat to capture snow on blooming flowers, though. It’s a rare occurrence but in the spring, that’s happened here (Tennessee Valley). Thank you for the lovely share. Have a fototastic week and please feel free to join my humble not-so WW linky party!
