Nasturtiums in the snow
We haven't even had a hard frost here in NW Oregon but now we have snow. I still have nasturtiums growing and so went out and picked some this morning. By afternoon it began to snow, as the forecasters have been predicting for several days now.
It's barely cold enough for the snow to stick, so it is melting pretty quickly, but everything is covered, including my bamboo. It is always so pretty, to see the branches bend down with the weight of the snow. They always bounce back.
Hope you all are snug in your homes. I just came in from feeding the llamas and playing with the dogs in the snow. Sadie definitely loves the snow! She played and played, biting the snow, chasing snowballs, making snowdogangels, and generally having a good time. Rocky just dug in a spot, I think he could hear a mouse under the snow. The llamas watched us, wondering what the big deal was. I think I shall throw another log on the fire. I'm sticking close to the stove today, doing hand stitching on some fabric hearts as I listen to the radio.
The sheer heart above I created from a vintage napkin I picked up at a garage sale. I will embellish it next. The one below is the first one I have made. These could be fun Christmas gifts. Maybe not this orange one, but it's a start.
