Early Snow in Lancaster

In seed time learn,
in harvest teach,
in winter enjoy.
William Blake

We woke early this morning to snow! Mid-November is very early for snow here - we're only thirth-some miles north of Maryland. You can see that the Japanese Maple tree is still holding onto her leaves, giving us a lovely frosted orange look. Goodness, What does the Winter have in store for us? The Farmer's Almanac says we can expect lots of the white stuff. Good. It keeps the soil hydrated, adds nitrogen & provides an insulating blanket.

Speaking of Winter, we just scheduled a Solstice Sing-Along for Friday, December 19 at Radiance, my shop in downtown Lancaster. Come sing with us at 5:30 or 7:30, as we honor the dark time of year and celebrate the coming rebirth of the sun.
