Fast-Forward to Winter

Friday's snow came as something of a surprise. Two weeks ago, it was 28 degrees so nothing has had time to acclimatize, as the first killing frost arrived only Thursday night.

The leaves have yet to turn.

The hollyhocks look like they might still be alive.

And the grapes hadn't even started to ripen.
Ice wine anyone?

Wow...! And that's a frost? I'd hate to see the snow where you are then! The weather is really odd at the moment - where I am it's usually about 4 degrees warmer this time of year; and we're having the winds we usually get in August.

No, that is snow, but it came just hours after the first frost. But it is gone now, thankfully!
