Snow in Them There Mountains

We had our first snowfalls this week. The initial fall was up in the mountains and then on Saturday morning we woke up to about an inch on the lawn and sidewalks (well everything). I timed my fertilizing just right again. On Thursday I mowed the lawn and applied the fertilizer anticipating that it would snow. I find that is works best if there is a snowfall just after application. That cold moisture seems to really put it to work on the roots. I have mixed feelings at this time of year. I am glad to rid myself of the labor of caring for gardens and lawn. But at the same time, I miss the beauty of the gardens and being able to sit outside (I guess I could still sit outside if I bundled up warm).
