It snowed this week which doesn't happen a lot in the pacific northwest. It's kind of an event for us here. Schools close when there's a 1/2 inch of snow and all my friends from the east laugh at the hysterical west coasters. Regardless, I love it when it snows. It makes the garden feel so different, highlighting some plants that before were faded and dull, like this sedum above. It's dark out these days, and cold, but I don't mind because my garden is transformed yet again.
