First Snowfall

We had our first snowfall this weekend.  It was no more than a couple of inches but it did cause me to bring into the basement the last of the plants that I had left outside (the jasmine, a lantana, and a hibiscus).  Temperatures dropped below 25 which is my threshold for those plants that I had known from Southern California.  The clean white snow shows everything to good advantage so I went around taking a few pictures before it all melted.

I know I should take those chairs in for the Winter but they look so good out there on the hillside.

    Snow does add another dimension, doesn’t it?

    This California native is really enjoying all of your snow photos. My lantana are still surviving outdoors, but I did have to cover them the other night….
