The First Kiss of Winter
29 degrees, light snow falling
The leaves on the alders around our house have not changed color but since the sub-freezing temperatures of earlier this week, they have been falling in the slightest breeze. This morning's blustery winds have piled them up on the deck where the first actual snow of the season found them.
The falling snow makes a whispering sound against the dry leaves that still cling to the trees.
