    The Spy looks like he is finally in his proper element…those first few images look like the frozen tundra wastelands of Russia! ;). Baby looks less impressed to be honest and I am starting to be a whole lot less sad that we don’t get snow or frost here to make the place look pretty. All of that gardening work! EEK! I will take a nice mild wet winter any day! But that doesn’t mean I don’t love looking at other people’s snowy wonderlands, I just don’t want to clean up after them ;)

      Yes, the Spy likes the cold/snow and Baby is not too sure. Though she said she had fun today playing outside at school in the snow. Surviving winter is all about the proper attire! It is supposed to get down to 13 tonight…head to toe fur?! hahaha

    Oh, dear, is your eucalyptus a goner? I love the pics of the lemon cuke vine and tithonia with the snowy cap. It is hard to believe it is mid-November already. I bet the kids were excited about the snow. Christmas is just around the corner!

      The eucalyptus is still holding on…but tonight is a low of 13! I didn’t get a chance to dig it up this weekend…Yes, the kids were very excited about the snow and are already asking to decorate for Christmas!
