Snowflakes are flying!

Snow on Montmorenci chery
The first accumulation of snow this season brings an end to the warm weather we were enjoying.  It looks like Old Man Winter is right on time this year.  That said, we had a very unusual thunderstorm come through on the 23rd.  One hour after the picture below was taken, the cloud moved over the farm and dropped nearly a quarter of an inch of rain (note the lack of leaves on the trees - it was that late in the fall).

I finished planting the last of my blackberry bushes in the bramblery this last week.  What a job.  I have a few more things I'd like to plant, but when depends on the weather.  It all has to be done by mid-October when the ground starts to freeze.
I'll leave you with a picture of Chica (still the little trouble-maker), fall-blooming Asiatic Lilies and the silhouette of Denali from the bramblery:
