The Season's First Snowfall at the Farm

The first real snowflakes of the season are always fun to see.

Over the weekend, we had a light snowfall here in Bedford, New York. Until now, the weather has remained quite warm. And, although this storm system was short-lived, it left a coating of beautiful white snow on the landscape. Fortunately, all the plants are tucked away in temperature-controlled greenhouses, but we are still in the process of preparing for the winter season ahead - soon all the shrubs, hedges and cold-sensitive garden containers will be covered in burlap.

I always love touring the farm early in the morning after a snowfall. Here are some of my photos - enjoy...
