Looking out my window today, I saw snow flakes. They weren't exactly falling, they were floating mid-air. There were just a few of the little flakes and the wind was bouncing them around, tossing them like a ball back and forth to an invisible hand. They must have melted as soon has they finally made it to the ground, or maybe they just vanished on their descent. It is so dry here they may have just evaporated into thin air! Whatever, they are gone, but it was just another nudge by Mother Nature letting me know that winter indeed is on it's way. With that said, let's have one last look at a few plants in my garden before they disappear below the heavy snow which will be here any day now.
