The temperatures have plummeted here in Minnesota and we had our first snow storm a week or so ago. The majority of that snow has melted, but enough remains on the ground that it is hard to ignore the fact that winter has arrived.
The colder temperatures have caused ice to form on the slow-moving backwater of the river.
With its swift currents, the main river is fighting off the ice.
The blades of grass look like icicles yesterday and the lawn sparkled and shimmered in the afternoon sunshine.
The already heavy sunflower heads drooped further under the added weight of the ice.
The delicate asparagus ferns in the vegetable garden…
I found this ice formation on a dried up cosmos flower fascinating. How did this even happen??
Yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like winter around here. More snow has just started falling… just in time for Thanksgiving.
Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
