First Snow

Rocky & I went for a nice morning walk yesterday as Fort Collins was getting dusted with its first snow of the year.  Our fall was really beautiful this year, and the bright colored leaves have stuck around longer than in previous, windier, Octobers.  Snow always brings a blanket of quiet and stillness in the mornings, a time I love sharing with Rocky.  The trees seemed to burn ever brighter against the white, and reminded me of a quote that made me happy when I read it a few days ago.

“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.”   -William Cullen Bryant

Today there is even more snow on the ground, and most of the trees will be bare come tomorrow.  Rocky and I are off to take advantage of the snow again, because by Halloween we will be in 70’s again.  Happy Friday!
